Metaphors on Vision: Films by Menken and Brakhage
Experimental Response Cinema and Spellerberg Projects present an evening in celebration of the life and work of experimental filmmaker Stan Brakhage. This event includes a program of 16mm films by Marie Menken, who was a major influence on Brakhage early in his career, and two later Brakhage works, one of which is on 35mm.
Menken films include: Notebook (1963), Go Go Go (1964), Glimpse of the Garden (1957), and Dwightiana (1959). Brakhage films include Interpolations 1-5 (1992, 35mm), and one additional 16mm film. Total running time is approximately one hour.
This series is presented in conjunction with the republication of Brakhage’s 1963 book Metaphors of Vision, which has been out of print for 40 years. Copies of the book are available for purchase at the screening. The program is introduced by Light Industry’s Thomas Beard.
Presented in collaboration with Experimental Response Cinema.
