Films by Gregory J. Markopoulos

A landmark of American experimental filmmaking, acclaimed for its brilliantly structured editing and intense, sensuous colors, Twice a Man (1963, 46 min.) is about a young man troubled by his homosexuality who's saved from suicide by a lover and confronts his seductive mother. This story, told in fragmentary flashes of image and dialogue, is chronologically splintered (the mother is seen as both young and old) in a manner that evokes the intertwining of identities among people close to each other. Also showing: Psyche (1947, 25 min.), and Sorrows (1969, 6 min.), a masterful exploration of Richard Wagner's house, with layered superimpositions and repeated images holding every detail in exquisite balance.
