1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with visual anthropologist Edmund Carpenter, Emile de Antonio appeared on Screening Room in 1973 to screen and discuss excerpts from his films Point of order, Rush to judgement, In the year of the pig and Millhouse: a white comedy. Emile de Antonio (1919-1989) was one of America's most influential political and avant-garde filmmakers, who started by making documentary films in the mid-1950s. His often-controversial work focuses on the United States during the Cold War and sharply criticizes American institutions and government officials. Films on Joseph McCarthy, Richard Nixon, and the conduct of the Vietnam War led to de Antonio's becoming the object of FBI surveillance. De Antonio was also involved with the New York art world of the 1960s, which he documented in Painters painting
