Nathaniel Dorsky and Jerome Hiler met in 1964 at the premiere of Dorsky’s first film, Ingreen. This encounter marked the beginning of a shared life and a series of creative exchanges. Covering a span of over forty years, this book brings together interviews, writings, and documents related to the 16mm films made by the two filmmakers in New York, at the country house in New Jersey where they lived in the late 1960s, and in San Francisco, where they moved in 1971 and currently reside.

Illuminated Hours: The Early Cinema of Nathaniel Dorsky and Jerome Hiler covers each filmmaker's life and work from childhood to the early 2000s, telling a story of self-discovery and personal and artistic relationship. It features extensive original interviews as well as new and reprinted texts by Anne Waldman, Haden Guest, Arindam Sen, Pablo Marín, Celeste Araújo, Mark McElhatten, Jonas Mekas, Stan Brakhage, Warren Sonbert, and Max Goldberg, along with more than a hundred color photographs, documents, and stills.
