Dear Deke,

Thank you for sharing this very sad news. I’ve long admired Al’s work - his 
book and numerous articles on experimental film are never far from my reach 
when I’m writing, and I’m sure many other scholars would say the same. He was 
encouraging of my own work, which meant a lot to me. He’ll continue to be a 
force to be reckoned with.
All best wishes,

Dr. Jonathan Walley
