Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. Recordings, 2008-2012
Series I. Getty Foundation funded Pacific Standard Time oral histories, 2008-2012 8.5 Linear Feet (18 boxes and 5 enclosures: printed material, 1 hard drive, 26 video tapes, 276 optical discs. 1.52 TB)
Los Angeles Filmforum: "Alternative Projections: Experimental Film in Los Angeles 1945-1980," 2009-2010 1.6 Linear Feet (4 boxes: 92 optical discs; 204.1 GB)
Los Angeles Filmforum's project, "Alternative Projections: Experimental Film in Los Angeles 1945-1980," focused on the community of filmmakers, artists, curators and programmers who contributed to the creation and presentation of experimental film and video in Southern California in the postwar era. Filmforum's 2011 exhibition was a series of film screenings at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, as well as several collaborative screenings with other cultural organizations. L.A. Filmforum's project included film screenings, oral history interviews, and symposia, and was part of the Los Angeles-based Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. initiative. A few of the oral history interview video recordings (DVDs) were not playable when the Getty received them from Filmforum. Although these few video recordings are unavailable thorough the Getty, the transcripts for all Filmforum recordings are available in their entirety.
Materials date from 2009 to 2010 and include video recordings of public panel discussions/symposia as well as video recordings and transcripts of interviews with individuals from the Los Angeles postwar filmmaking community.
Additional information on this exhibition can be found on the PST website at
Interviews are arranged in alphabetical order by the surname of the interviewee. Symposia (panel discussions) follow the interviews.
The content of all the interviews is open and unrestricted. The recordings and transcripts exist solely in digital format (electronic documents and recordings that were transferred to the Archives on optical discs). The discs act as archival masters and are therefore restricted.
Due to lack of agreements from some public panel discussion participants, panel discussions (transcripts and recordings) are only available on site at the Getty Research Institute or through Interlibrary Loan.
