Tony Conrad: Completely in The Present is a documentary about the life and work of filmmaker, musician, artist and teacher Tony Conrad, directed by Tyler Hubby. The screening is introduced by Lasse Marhaug.
Tony Conrad was one of the great American artists of his time, yet to the world at large he remains largely underappreciated. After his passing in 2016, there's been a renewed interest in his work, in great part thanks to this documentary. With recordings of Conrad and his collaborators, shot over the last 22 years, as well as extracts from his own archives of film and sound recordings, the movie has become a reflection of Tony Conrads particular playful and radical way to create art.
