Tribute Emile de Antonio

MR. HOOVER AND I

Emile De Antonio
USA 1989
85min
V'03

I decided to make a film about J. Edgar Hoover and me. Without any voice but mine. Hoover is reputed to be dead. I never end as I intend in the beginning. Two basically non-political people are also in my film: Nancy de Antonio, my wife, who cuts my hair. This is cinéma vérité since she cuts my hair in real life. And John Cage, who has been important to me. The film is as cheap as can be. I talk into the camera. Nancy cuts my hair, John bakes a loaf of bread and talks about his work. (Emile de Antonio)
