Duskly Driven Drift (1973) 16mm, black and white, 19 min

Genre: Experimental

An intriguing artistic analysis of approximately 100 baffling frames from EEL. This intuitive examination so carefully deser-like in its many parts. A patient, alpha-floating audience is rewarded in the last 'sex scene.' The print is always never the same. --D. L.

Crux (1974) 16mm, black and white, 2.5 min

Genre: Experimental

One day, under the guidance of Bruce Baillie, I got lost. I ended up shooting on my own. A few weeks later I saw one shot that made me want to go back to that Bedlum of a multi-level parking garage and make my own film. A seed of REMEMBERING: CLEARING SPACE. --D. L.

Lumina's Gaze (1974) 16mm, black and white, 1.25 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Films about Film, Media

Fortunately, a very short play of light. I had a crush on the nature of projectors. Bill Judson detected a suspicion that a demon was truly contained in the machines. --D. L.

Eel (1976) 16mm, black and white, 11 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

A masterpiece of scratched image and sound. Scratch films are immediately intriguing, but quickly fall into cloying cuteness unless they are tightly organized. They are the hardest films to make. EEL is loved by avant-garde musicians. I was too unnerved to enjoy my 1976 show at Anthology until I saw/heard this work in their earth-wrestling theater. --D. L.

Remembering: Clearing Space (Part 1 of Balinese Trilogy) (1976) 16mm, black and white, 11 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Dance, Ethnic / Multicultural, Films about Film, Media

"REMEMBERING: CLEARING SPACE returns to neutrally recorded ethnographic material of TRANCE AND DANCE IN BALI (Bateson, Mead) to the spirit of the ritual observed... Lee's impulse is quite different from the didactic and ontological concerns of many recent structural films employing rephotography. At one level, Lee's title creates a pun on the film's organizing principles, re-membering, as the filmmaker dismembers and recombines elements of the image and soundtracks. But the Balinese source material of REMEMBERINGL CLEARING SPACE is not merely a fortuitous opportunity to explore fundamental qualities of the film medium. Rather, Lee attempts to inscribe into the film's form qualities of Balinese performance and dance." --William

To a World Not Listening (1980) 16mm, black and white, 41 min

Obscenity (1981) 16mm, black and white, 27.5 min

Genre: Animation, Experimental

Keywords: Political / Social Activism

OBSCENITY seeks to find a common history among men. This examination uses animation derived from men's magazines, 'documentary' footage of working men, and personal commentary. The aggression that men in this culture are conditioned to act out, in all its gaudy and ultimately lethal manifestations, is considered with a unique syntax of filmic expression. --D. L.
