Talks 
Introduction 
 

by John Korty

The 9pm screening will be introduced by director John Korty.

 
The Language of Faces (1961)
 

Korty’s haunting black-and-white documentary records a silent three-day vigil outside the Pentagon by a group of a thousand Quakers protesting nuclear weapons.

 
Imogen Cunningham, Photographer (1969)
 

Korty captures intimate moments with then-86-year-old photographer Imogen Cunningham, paying tribute to her trailblazing career and capturing her salty humor and plain-spoken wisdom.

 
 
 
The Music School (1974)
 

Based on a John Updike story with one line of dialogue, this evocative drama produced for PBS—about a writer grappling with spiritual quandaries—is one of Korty’s finest achievements.

 
 
Breaking the Habit (1964)
 

From a laidback dialogue about giving up smoking, this cut-out animation was made in six weeks with a homemade camera stand, and went on to be nominated for an Oscar.

 
 
 
Children’s Television Workshop Spots (1970s)
 

A sampling of the spots that Korty Films made for both Sesame Street and The Electric Company.
