film…It's the 13th Annual NY Underground Film Festival, on now through March 14th at Anthology Film Archives. As always, the festival is a crazy mix of themes, styles, and subjects. In the lineup is a documentary (pictured) called The Ontological Cowboy about Richard Foreman and his influential, avant-garde Ontological-Hysteric Theater company.
