SAAG Cinema & Monograph are pleased to present six short 16mm films by Richard Raxlen. Created between 1982 and 2002, the selected works combine found materials, animation, structuralist techniques, Dadaist text, and absurdist humour. 

Richard Raxlen considers himself an artist who uses film, rather than a filmmaker, whatever that means. Picasso said "It takes a long time to become young." So Raxlen guesses he's young now. Rick worked at the NFB when Lipsett, MacLaren and Larkin were there, taught at Concordia, and won one of only two Genies ever awarded to Best Experimental Film (then called Canadian Film Awards) for an image-processed West Coast Native legend about face-changing called "Legend."
