Coolidge Corner Theatre (Moviehouse I)
The infamous and eye-popping vintage 1960’s Boston Tea Party Light Show Films (shot & directed by
Ken Brown) return with a dazzling live psychedelic musical arrangement performed by New York and
Boston luminaries.

It is high time for a proper Boston screening celebration of the absolutely unique image world of filmmaker,
photographer, cartoonist and designer Ken Brown. For over thirty years Brown has been making stunning
experimental films, animations and music videos. For three years in the late 60’s in Boston, Ken Brown
was the resident filmmaker for the ultra-psychedelic Cinemateque and Rock Club - the Boston Tea
Party. Between 1967 and 1969 he produced hundreds of Super-8mm works loaded with
staggering superimpositions and startling visual dimensions for this infamous Boston Light Show.

"It is high time for a survey of the absolutely unique image world of filmmaker, photographer, cartoonist and designer Ken Brown. A man who dons many hats, Brown is perhaps best known for his peculiar and distinctive postcards and other graphic products, (wrapping paper, rubber stamps, t-shirts, etc.). His first love and most abiding passion, however, is film. In the late 60’s, Brown was the filmmaker for the ultra-psychedelic Boston Tea Party light show, producing Super-8mm works loaded with staggering superimpositions and startling visual dimensions. His subsequent short films have continued to mine his deep fascination with American pop culture, the quotidian world of home movies and the idiosyncratic world of outsiders and visionary artists. Besides the copious experimental films, animations and video documentaries he has made over the years, Brown has produced and directed dozens of short commissions for MTV, VH-1, SESAME STREET, AMC and other clients. These two programs will give an overview of his prodigious output." from Anthology Film Archives program guide
