    Paradise Now


    by Microcinema

    "Paradise Now" is EXCLUSIVELY DISTRIBUTED by Microcinema DVD. To order this DVD and/or other Microcinema titles, go to: “Paradise Now”: In 1968, nobody had seen anything like it. Now, you can. The Living Theatre in Amerika collects two major contemporaneous films documenting the Living Theatre during this sensational period—Marty Topp’s masterful “Paradise Now,” a filmic, intense collage of inflammatory performance footage and soundtrack (including music by the MC5) produced by poet/mystic/mylar photographer/filmmaker Ira Cohen (The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda), and Gwen Brown’s “Emergency!,” a fly-on-the-wall documentary featuring interviews and priceless footage of theatre members composing scenes, building sets, taking care of their toddlers and battling skeptical members of the press—as well as new interviews with Judith Malina and other Living Theatre members, texts and art by Julian Beck, Antonin Artaud and others that informed “Paradise Now,” an alternate soundtrack for “Emergency!,” two large posters, a short film documenting a recent revival of “Paradise Now,” and much more.
