Magnificat: Films by Pat O'Neill

74 minutes 2012

Pat O'Neill has worked in the Hollywood special effects industry (among his credits are The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi), but this program collects five of his experimental pieces. Saugus Series (1974, 18 min.) and Sidewinders Delta (1976, 20 min.) showcase his imaginative optical printing effects; superimposing several different images, he creates abstract sequences that recall vintage monster movies like King Kong (1933) or Earth vs. the Spider (1958). Also on the program: Down Wind (1973), Last of the Persimmons (1972), and Runs Good (1971).
