Ad Hoc #3: Beautiful Rage

By on


Average: 5 (1 vote)

Three milestones of avant-garde filmmaking. Wieland, Brakhage and Sonbert transcend, at least in part, their despair and rage against imperialism, war, violence, and homophobia, through art.

“I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.” (Frankenstein, Mary Shelley)

"Imagination is the only weapon in the war against realty." (Lewis Carroll
