An interview with Hollis Frampton by Robert Gardner. Frampton was a major figure in the American experimental film movement of the 1960s and '70s and a widely published theorist. He made such acclaimed and influential films as Zorns Lemma (1970) the Hapax Legomena series (1971-72), and the unfinished Magellan. Retrospectives of his work have been shown at the Walker Art Center, the Museum of Modern Art, and elsewhere. The journal October twice devoted whole issues to Frampton, and the entire bodyof his film work is preserved in the Royal Film Archive of Belgium.
