About

A man wonders, measures, views relationships, people, places, things, time, himself. A sensual journey through a series of subjective reflections. "[A] beautifully photographed color montage of shots; insect, animal, man and galaxy; a sobering antidote to the orgy of subjectivism going on elsewhere." – Vincent Canby, The New York Times "The artist's search for the meaning of his own existence is never-ending and takes many forms. Ed Emshwiller's remarkable epic, RELATIVITY, continues this exploration with extraordinary frankness and rare technical skill. The sequence which symbolically portrays a woman at the moment of sexual climax is one of the most beautiful in the literature of film." – Willard Van Dyke "RELATIVITY is a marvelously sensual film ... it is, I have no doubt, a masterpiece." – Richard Whitehall, LA Free Press
