Jim Shedden - Brakhage

Rating: 

Average: 2 (1 vote)

Juxtaposing archival footage spanning 35 years, as well as rare film excerpts and vintage and contemporary interviews with Brakhage, his friends, family, colleagues and critics, BRAKHAGE is the perfect complement to the Criterion Collection’s BY BRAKHAGE

From 1952 until his death in 2003, Stan Brakhage created almost 400
films. Working completely outside of the mainstream, he consistently
redefined cinematic art with such celebrated pieces as WINDOW WATER
BABY MOVING (his first wife giving birth) and MOTHLIGHT (leaves and
butterflies taped to celluloid), as well as a host of films
hand-painted in shockingly brilliant color including DANTE’S QUARTET
and BLACK ICE.

Juxtaposing archival footage spanning 35 years, as well as rare film
excerpts and vintage and contemporary interviews with Brakhage, his
friends, family, colleagues and critics, BRAKHAGE is the perfect
complement to the Criterion Collection’s BY BRAKHAGE DVD. Executive
produced by Ron Mann (GRASS, TWIST), Jim Shedden’s stunning,
bittersweet portrait explores the depth and breadth of Brakhage’s
genius and the exquisite splendor of his films.
