Another Time: Another Voice (1964) 16mm, color, 30 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Films about Film, Media

"Regardless of country of origin, classification, or labels, one characteristic seems to pervade the creative film expression of our time. That is a growing awareness that the film medium has a formal as well as a representational aspect. That it can best communicate vision and realty when it organically exploits its own plastic means and mode of composition. And that for a film to move people deeply, the filmmaker needs not only a special way of seeing experience, but a specific way of filming it. This film tells the story of a man who has a rendezvous with memory and desire; a man who can neither ecscape from his present nor his past. Moving on two levels--the objective and subjective--the film shifts back and forth from vision to reality: from memory to desire; from the prison of obsessions to the metaphors of regression."--L.J.

A coherent picture of the development of Hellenic art from the geometric 8th Century B.C. to the Classical Age of Pericles in the 5th Century. In broad scope, the rise of Greek art is followed through its various periods, cutting across art forms from architecture to sculpture to pottery with its painted decorations."--L.J.
