Homer Groening’s success as an independent commercial filmmaker made it possible for him to moonlight as an independent experimental filmmaker. This 1973 promotional film for Linfield College, his own alma mater, is one of his commercial jobs.
Here’s part one of A Student’s View of Linfield College. The other two sections of the film are also on Youtube.
Perhaps Homer felt unusually at home on a college campus because his own father, Abram Groening (Matt Groening’s grandfather), taught at Lewis & Clark College in Portland.
I hereby claim A Students’s View Of Linfield College as an Oregon film, based on Homer Groening’s contribution as writer, director, producer, sound recordist, editor and narrator.
