Eyetoon (1968) 16mm, color, 8 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Body

"The sea, tranquil and violent, is the ultimate symbol for Jerry Abrams' EYETOON and the ultimate equivalent to making love -- his concern in this short and visually dazzling film. Abrams contrasts the rushing faces of New York and a highway juggernaut with the peaceful joining of bodies in a Gjon Mili-like stroboscopic sequence -- always with a burbling, flashing maelstrom of emotions underlying and double-exposing with the bodies. It is visually lovely, technically first-rate and impossible to ignore. The graphic sex is economically handled." -- John L. Wasserman, San Francisco Chronicle "The film EYETOON would seem to be the perfect synthesis of the metaphysical, spiritual and sexual feelings of a sensitive experimental filmmaker." -- Reverend Earl Shagley

Lotus Wing (1968) 16mm, color & b/w, 16.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic, Political / Social Activism

The world is recommitting sexual-political suicide by daily insertion of missile-cocks into self-orifices. Complete with ejaculatory delusions, military erections, and the animated virility of Krazy Kat. LOTUS WING spends USA over us all as our lives are spent wiping up the remains of our self-destruct. Probably my last film in this genre.

Mainstream (1968) 16mm, color, 6.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Philosophical

The infinite span of a thought is transformed into spatial-temporal intersects -- to become and become and become and never more or less -- MAINSTREAM is a fresh dip into oblivion -- a confused taste of love -- an expanded glimpse into a micro-moment -- a sliver of mind's motion becoming.
