Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One

(William Greaves, 1968)

Filmmaker William Greaves stands in front of a man and a woman. He is holding a film camera.

We’re excited to partner with Ohio State student group Cinéseries to share William Greaves’ 1968 classic Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One, an essential work of experimental film.

For their monthly program at the Wex, Cinéseries has selected William Greaves’s landmark film, which wraps layer upon layer upon layer of documentary action into an unforgettable whole. Stick around for a postscreening discussion (believe us, you’ll want to talk about it).

About Cinéseries

In the words of Cinéseries's members: Cinéseries is a student-led group that organizes monthly screenings in collaboration with the Wexner Center for the Arts. We aim to offer a space for students and the community to engage with film and expanded cinema from makers from a variety of backgrounds. We aspire to create an environment conducive to critical engagement by inviting filmmakers to showcase work that takes risks, challenges norms, and opens a conversation by devoting to a wide range of artist-centered and independent media.
