Films by Stan Brakhage

99 minutes

Four works by the experimental filmmaker. Fred Camper writes of City Streaming (1990), "Every camera movement—pans, tilts, rotations, rapid jiggles—transforms the seen world into rhythmically moving colored objects that seem to sing. . . . [T]his is a film in the classic Brakhage mode: an inner vision transforms the world into the filmmaker's own personal music." Murder Psalm (1981), says Camper, is "an industrial film about epilepsy [that] becomes a horrific vision of our repetitive and reductive mass culture," and Unconscious London Strata (1981) "conflates fragments of urban forms with abstract fields of changing shapes and colors, giving one the sense of peering into a human eye or discovering 'a world in a grain of sand.'" Also screening: The Loom (1986).
