A nice letter linking two important figures in the growth of independent filmmaking. Vogel, the Austrian-born cineaste and curator was the founder of Cinema 16 dedicated to the "exhibition and distribution of documentary and experimental films." Meyers, a reclusive editor, director, and writer had been a part of NY Kino and the left-wing Frontier Films groups and made major contributions to landmark films including "The Savage Eye," Joseph Strick's "Ulysses," and Samuel Beckett's "Film.". Here, Vogel attempts to arrange with Meyers to put on a screening of Meyers's Academy Award-nominated docu-drama "The Quiet One" (1948).
