Queen of Sheba Meets the Atom Man/Ron Rice

WIKI: Queen of Sheba Meets the Atom Man (1963) is an experimental film by Ron Rice. It stars Winifred Bryan as the Queen of Sheba and Taylor Mead as the Atom Man. Featured players are Ron Rice, Julian Beck, Judith Malina, Jack Smith, and Jonas Mekas. Rice died before the editing was complete, so Mead finished the project in 1981.

"The film describes, poetically, a way of living. The film is a protest which is violent, childish, and sincere-a protest against an industrial world based on the cycle of production and consumption." --Albert Moravia, Rome L'Espresso.
