Love Must Love
28 min. silent, 1968
Flower generation celebration of love. Filmed in San Francisco and Berkeley California in collaboration with my girlfriend at the time, the actress Donna Germain.

Eye Lands
29 min. silent, 1970
Having moved from the city to the country, a continuation of ongoing investigations into filmmaking vision as a spiritual meditation. Documents an engagement with Avatar Meher Baba and his teachings.

Awakener
10 min. silent, 1969
Transition from psychelics to Meher Baba. Cinema as path to reality.

Ommo
17 min. silent, 1972
Originally an 8mm film with hand-painting which was blown up to 16mm and hand-painted again before multiple printings with several optical manipulations. A mandala of ever changing configurations, both angelic and demonic, to be seen as an evanescent phenomenon.

In the late 1960s I met Stan Brakhage when he attended a screening by local filmmakers in San Francisco. Afterwards he expressed an enthusiasm for trading some of his own 8 mm Songs for a print of my 8 mm film “Love Must Love”. We started a correspondence and then further trades for my 8 mm film “Eye Lands”. This dvd contains the three films pertaining to the enclosed facsimiles of the letters from Stan. About my 16 mm film “Ommo” (1971) Brakhage states: “I think I have never seen a more thoroughly worked-on hand-painted film”.
