Victor Grauer

Book of the Year Three Thousand (1974) 16mm, color, 48.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Literature & Theater

This film is my response to the epic tradition, from Homer to the Mahabharata--V. G. "This film reflects everything (Grauer) has been involved with in his previous films and he uses this knowledge in a highly personal and non-mechanical way. No matter how well previous type of 'flicker' film is done, they essentially remain machine-like and impersonal. In BOOK, Grauer extends his vision to encompass much more.... The totality of the experience is a kind of wrap-around poem... None of the parts exist by themselves, everything is interwoven to produce a strong and hypnotic unity."-- Bob Cowan, in Take One

Composition 1 (1978) 16mm, black and white, 1.25 min

Inspired by Mondrian, Brakhage and Kubelka. Strips of clear vs. opaque leader and white noise vs. silence. A strictly canonic, serial structure. One of my first ventures into neomodernism.--V. G.
