Mr. Pincus helped start the film school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the '70s and taught at Harvard into the early '80s. By then he was commuting from Vermont, where he had moved in part because of threats made to his family by a mentally unstable man he had known while filming in the South in the '60s.

Mr. Pincus left filmmaking entirely in the '80s and spent much of the next 30 years running a successful flower farm in Vermont. He also became a black-belt instructor of the Japanese martial art aikido.
