Over the years, the work of Oscar-winning filmmaker Hilary Harris moved steadily from abstraction to social commentary. In answer to his question, "Why make films at all?" he responds, "To give a richer vision of surrounding reality. My aim is to lift people out of their preconceptions." His pioneering films include Longhorns, Highway, Seawards the Great Ships, Organism, The Nuer, and Nine Variations on a Dance Theme. In addition to his work as a filmmaker, he lectured extensively, taught film editing, designed filmmaking and sound mixing equipment, and practiced sculpture.

"...Hilary Harris was one of the great cameramen of cinema..." — Jonas Mekas
