Optical Lyrics (1981) 16mm, color & b/w, 24 min

Keywords: Philosophical, Psychology & Mental Health

Six short films (WOLF; LINDA; SWAN BOAT; RACE; PIE PLATES; RIPPLE); lyrical flights between stillness and motion, chance and choice, yin and yang; structures based on simple matting and rapid single-frame intercutting of short strips of S-8 optically printed to 16mm. The filmmaker creates a lingering impression of harmony using a minimal amount of footage... The impression we get is one of piercing light and home-spun shadows. -- Linda Gross, Los Angeles TIMES
