Deli Commedia

United States, 1985
Short, TV Movie, Documentary


Conceived as a slapstick comedy, Cunningham’s nod to the improvised farces of the Italian 18th century commedia dell’arte and to the two-reel comedies of the silent screen. The score by Pat Richter functioned like the piano accompaniments to silent films.
