BASIL KING : MIRAGE
a film co-directed by Nicole Peyrafitte & Miles Joris-Peyrafitte
at Anthology Film Archives
32 2nd Ave – NYC
Saturday September 22
We are really exited about the premiere of our 22 mn documentary film on painter & poet Basil King at Anthology Film Archive. This is a family affair since Miles & I directed the film & Joseph Mastantuono (my elder son) is the associate producer.
A few words about Basil King:
King’s syncretic aesthetics have been shaped by his early childhood in WWII London, friendship with poets of the San Francisco Renaissance, apprenticeship to Abstract Expressionist painters Adolph Gottlieb, Robert Motherwell, Mark Rothko in New York, and by his mentors and friends at Black Mountain College, including Robert Creeley, Charles Olson, and John Wieners.
Participants in the program at Anthology include Edna Augusta, William Benton, Laurie Duggan, Tom Fink, Harry Lewis, Tom Patterson, George Quasha, Barry Schwabsky, and each of The Friends of Basil King.
