  • July '71 in San Francisco, Living at Beach Street, Working at Canyon Cinema, Swimming in the Valley of the Moon

    1971. USA. Directed by Peter Hutton. A diary of free-spirited communal living (saunas, geodesic domes, bread baking, plucking a duck), and a moment-by-moment observation of fleeting pleasures (a bicycle wheel plowing through rainwater, a woman holding yoga positions, a glider plane performing barrel rolls), filmed when Hutton was a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. 35 min.

  • New York, Near Sleep (for Saskia)

    1972. USA. Directed by Peter Hutton. This dream of New York, created in the spirit of filmmaker Yasujirô Ozu, is hushed and solitary in its pleasures, and sensitive to the effects of sunlight and moonlight on the city's hard-edged geometries. 10 min.

  • Florence

    1975. USA. Directed by Peter Hutton. Hutton made this black-and-white study of texture, light, and abstraction while teaching at Hampshire College and living in an abandoned factory in Florence, New York. 7 min.

  • Boston Fire

    1979. USA. Directed by Peter Hutton. Recalling the paintings and watercolors of J.M.W. Turner, Hutton evokes elemental forces of fire, wind, and water during a city blaze. 8 min.
