An experimental film script of the filmmaker and performance artist Byron Black, who left the United States for Vancouver in the late 1960's as a draft dodger.
Known for his vivid and eccentric blend of social critique, science fiction, documentary, and hippy anarchism, Black' films were filled with, in his own words, "Hippie danger, dope dealers, nuclear war, alternative living, slipping and sliding."
Associated with VIVO, an artist-run film program in Vancouver, he was an inveterate traveler during the 1970s, and his 1978 film Mango Magritte is a blend of travelogue and social satire. While this item is "an interpretive script for the film", it reads as an artists' book, featuring concrete poems, images, collage, and experiments in typography.
