Jim the Man (1970) 16mm, color, 77 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Psychology & Mental Health

JIM THE MAN is a new kind of American film with violent montage effects, starkly beautiful photography and a unique story construction that ends in a startling eruption of psychological images. It tells the story of Jim Curtiss, a man now detached from reality. His fantasies and realities are out of connection; he struggles to join his dreamlife with his realife; he goes through a series of adventures which underline his isolation. He is an emblem of the lonely bachelor threading his way though the city. --M. K.

Wisp (1963) 16mm, black and white, 7.5 min

Genre: Experimental

"... boy-meets-girl here is just an excuse for a dazzling display of editing. The film is made up of shots each about hald a second long, and they make a real assault on the visual sense... a pattern of connections and associations, some of them symbolic, some of them emotional... It certainly has a richness of ideas... I trust your eyes are still in their sockets." --Colin Bennett, discussion the '63 Melbourne Film Festival.
