Film

Edition 1974
20' - 1965 - Drama
Director: Samuel Beckett, Alan Schneider With: Buster Keaton, Nell Harrison, James Karen, Susan Reed
A twenty-minute, almost totally silent film (no dialogue or music, save one 'shhh!') in which Buster Keaton attempts to evade observation by an all-seeing eye. But, as the film is based around Bishop Berkeley's principle 'esse est percipi' (to be is to be perceived), Keaton's very existence conspires against his efforts.
