This double bill showed how comical experimental films can be. In A & B IN ONTARIO (1966/84) by Joyce Wieland and Hollis Frampton, we see the two filmmakers chase each other with the Bolex. HALLELUJAH THE HILLS (1963) by Adolfas Mekas is "a slapstick poem, an intellectual hellzapoppin’, a gloriously fresh experiment and experience in the cinema of the absurd, the first cubistic comedy.“ (Time Magazine)
