About

ISY BOUKIR contains footage filmed in the Sahara during eighteen days.

I wanted to extend sequences in GOULIMINE, 1970 and to a greater degree permit the animal motions to determine structure. An arriflex was often positioned five to ten feet from the animals. In New York, partite animal forms were seperated into two segments: as walking and as graduated motion. Through the edited sequential duration, camel morphology vies with the viewer's inherent anthropomorphism... This film is the most successful in that the impression of these animals as primordial beings existing in barren yet awesomely beautiful surroundings far outweighs a consciousness of complicated editing and sound relationships.–N. G. "ISY BOUKIR is not exactly a study of camels–though unavoidably it is full of the material for such a study–but rather a study of the way in a flock of camels, individual camels, and parts of a camels, occupy the space available to the camera frame. This may sound preteniously abstract, but Ms. Graves's film is precise and wonderfully particular, and as appreciativee of its camels as of the controlled rhythms of their surges across the screen, the slight shifting of their legs, the curves of their extended necks. It is altogethter beautiful, rich, assured, tactful and intensive filmmaking."–Roger Greenspun, New York Times
