  • Toshio Matsumoto - For The Damaged Right Eye (1963)

    A dual-lobed, split-screen montage charting the unrest, sexuality and pop-culture of the late 1960’s. Sexual topography, typography and riot police coupled with grooving heads and the intermittent overlay of grid-breaking sequences of film and imagery constitute the bulk of (it). Both FtDRE and Ectasis paved the way for, and were eventually incorporated into Matsumoto’s 1969 film, Funeral Parade of Roses.

  • Toshio Matsumoto - The Song Of Stone (1963)

    songofstone.jpgWhile extracting and polishing their blocks of stone, stonecutters used to say “the stone is coming to life". This paradox provided Matsumoto with the best metaphor for what making a film is all about. In his opinion, filmmakers work images in the same way that stonecutters work stones.

  • Maya Deren - Meditation On Violence (1948)

    meditation.jpg
    In Meditation on Violence (1948) Deren's
    camera is motivated by the movement of the performer, Chao Li Chi. This
    film is marked by a lack of dynamism and mobility that we have come to
    expect from Deren's camera. It also obscures the distinction between
    violence and beauty. The shadows on the white wall behind Chi amplify
    the movement of the Wu Tang ritual. In Meditation on Violence Deren
    experiments with film time, reversing the film part way through
    producing a loop. Exhibited forwards and then backwards, the difference
    in the Wu Tang movements is almost imperceptible.
