Posted May 22nd, 2017 in New Acquisitions, News / Events

Canyon Cinema is pleased to announce that a new print of Bruce Baillie’s film Roslyn Romance (Is It Really True?) is now available for rental. This beautiful new print is the result of recent preservation work conducted by the Academy Film Archive, in collaboration with filmmaker Bruce Baillie.

Roslyn Romance (Is It Really True?) (1974 | 17 minutes | COLOR | SOUND)
My ROMANCE is intended for something like “broadcast” form, or like a correspondence … not so much for showing a big batch of it at one sitting. Eventually it should be in both film and videotape form.

The Introduction, Intro. I & II, is finished now. I will send rolls from time to time and hope one of these days to put the rest of it in shape for you to see. Meanwhile, I’ll be continuing to record the ROMANCE wherever I am.

The work seems to be a sort of manual, concerning all the stuff of the cycle of life, from the most detailed mundanery to … God knows.
