Intro by animator Emily Hubley, daughter of Faith Hubley.

 
A New Leaf

Dir. Elaine May
With May, Walter Matthau, Jack Weston
1971, 102min, 35mm

 

The great Elaine May wrote, directs, and stars in one of the funniest—and darkest—comedies of the 1970s. She’s the impossibly nerdy, botanist-heiress who becomes the mark of Walter Matthau’s fortune-hunting fallen aristocrat who sees marriage and murder as his ticket out of bankruptcy. What plays out is both deliciously deadpan and—thanks largely to May’s endearing performance—oddly touching.

 
W.O.W. (Women of the World)

Dir. Faith Hubley
1975, 10min, 35mm

 

In imaginative water-color compositions, animator Faith Hubley paints a mystical vision of the feminine throughout history.
