A Film Maker's Fitting Monument


Green River Cemetery, in East Hampton, is filled with out-of-the-ordinary styles of memorialization. These film reels mark the grave of Stan VanDerBeek, an acclaimed independent film maker. Talk about unique!

Two of his major works were included in the exhibit 'The American Independent Cinema: 1958-1964'' at the Whitney Museum of American Art, in 1984, the year VanDerBeek died.
