The Archive is renowned for its pioneering efforts to rescue, preserve and showcase moving image media. It is dedicated to ensuring that film history is explored and enjoyed for generations to come.

The Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago presents an encore screening of director Larry Clark's feature film debut, Passing Through (1977), on Tuesday, April 15.  The film previously screened at the Gene Siskel on April 11, and is being presented in a new print produced by UCLA Film & Television Archive.

Described by LA Weekly as, "...raw, gritty, surreal and at times, terrifying," the award-winning Passing Through is often cited as one of the best jazz films ever made.

I'd like to get in touch with Larry Clark and/or Ted Lange re: getting access to a copy of "Passing Through". I shared cinematographer credit with Roderick Young.
