As a director and producer of documentary films, Emile de Antonio (1919-1989) worked to capture the counter cultures and political events of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. De Antonio's Marxist leanings were captured in his first film, Point of Order! (1964) which chronicled the Army-McCarthy hearings. A later film, Painters Painting (1972) captured the New York Arts Scene with which de Antonio was intimately connected, in particular focusing on Pop artists Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol. As participant in The Kitchen's 1980 panel series “Television, Society, and Art,” de Antonio discussed television as a means of realizing social change.
