Gordon Ball

Georgia (1966) 16mm, color, 3.5 min

Genre: Experimental

A perfect tone poem of film-within its short time limit, it contains much of the beauty of night and the sensuality of women... perhaps THE woman one sometimes sees dancing in the night, but never touches in the flesh. Dream-like, beautiful -- its brevity compacts its power and renders it haunting. -- William R. Trotter GEORGIA is a good example of a new genre of film that has been developing lately, and that is, a portrait film. in some cases, like those of Brakhage, Warhol, or Markopoulos, there is an attempt at an objective portrait of a man or woman; in other cases, like in the case of GEORGIA, the portrait becomes completely personalized, poetically transposed; it may not be as multi-faced, as say, Brakhage's portrait of McClure, but an inspired portrait nevertheless, in the vein of a single-minded lyrical love poem. -- Jonas Mekas
