"The editing of ANOTHER SHOT is really quite, quite good, I think...Nick Dorsky make the most extensive and interesting comments I have heard about ANOTHER SHOT. He was interested by the transposition of subject and viewer, i.e. film begins with viewer observing your (the filmmaker's) face, later your face appears to be observing the walking figure (Pierre), and at the end the figure has become the viewer or imaginer who walks off into the film image. Interestingly, he thought that I was Pierre and that this was my film. When I explained, he agreed that your film fits both in feeling and technique with my work--however, the autobiographical aspect seems to me very vivid and distinct."--Tom Chomont.

"...is a portrait of the American experimental filmmaker Tom Chomont, who resided in Eruope from 1969-1975, before returning to New York.
"During the two years preceding his return to the United States he resided in Amsterdam with Daniel Singelenberg. The subject of the film is their friendship and, more precisely, the sadness of losing a lover. In the autumn of 1977, Tom Chomont came back to Amsterdam, on the occasion of a retrospective exposition of his work in the cinema 'De Melkweg' (The Milky Way). The greater part of the film was made during this period.
"The music is by Billie Holiday and by Richard Strauss: from 'Vierletzte Lieder' (Four Last Songs, 1949), 'Im Abendrot' (At Sunset) with words by Joseph von Eichendorff and sung by Gundula Janowitz, soprano, accompanied by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Berlin under the direction of Herbert von Karajan."--From the program of the XI Biennale de Paris, 1980.
