The Chicago Film Archives presents new 16mm preservation prints (funded by the National Film Preservation Foundation) of three films by the unique Chicago-based filmmaker Don Klugman.

Nightsong (1964, 23 min.)
A portrait of the Chicago Near-North nightlife scene in the mid-1960s, centering around the struggles and romantic desires of an African American singer played by long-forgotten folk sensation Willie Wright.

I’ve Got This Problem (1966, 8 min.)
Traces the romantic relationship between a young man and woman (played by Klugman and Judy Harris) who meet in a downtown coffee shop; their nonstop dialogue fluctuates between playful psycho-babble and sincere attempts to relay their innermost feelings.

You’re Putting Me On (1969, 17 min.)
This film seems to pick up the same couple (again played by Klugman and Harris) a few years later, as they attend a swinging bohemian party where
they pilfer personal objects from the unsuspecting guests.
(Michelle Puetz)

Don Klugman will be present for audience discussion.
