About

"I can imagine only St. Francis looking at a water plate and water dripping so lovingly, so respectfully, so serenely. The usual reaction is: 'Oh what is it anyhow? Just a plate of water dripping.' But that is a snob remark. The remark has no love for the world, for anything. Snow and Wieland's film uplifts the object, and leaves the viewer with a finer attitude toward the world around him, it opens his eyes to the phenomenal world. and how can you love people if you don't love water, stone, grass." Jonas Mekas, New York Times, August 1969
