Bruce Elder

Bruce Elder (2003) 16mm, color, 106 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Environment & Nature

Chemical transformations of the image are wedded with electrical modifications to produce a fantasia of vibrantly colored alchemical forms that suggest an erotic wonder at all the world's surfaces, including many historical sites in Germany, the subject of Elder's boyhood fantasies, and of vineyards in Europe and America, which Elder uses as the sign of the goodness of the created world. The use of aleatory processes extends this faith into the making of the film. The subject of the film is what is gained, and what is lost, through these transformations.... The loss of innocence is wedded to the deepening of wisdom (and while we appreciate the ultimate richness such transformations bring, we also mourn what is lost in the process). Modern technologies are used to the ends of Magick.
