After Lumiere--L'Arroseur Arrose (1974) 16mm, color, 13.5 min

Genre: Narrative, Experimental

Keywords: Films about Film, Media

Like all the works I have done which refer directly to another artist, AFTER LUMIERE is not directly 'about' the Lumiere original. It is the starting point for an investigation. In this case it is an investigation into consequentiality, or at least the significance of sequentiality in the construction of meaning and concept. As such, the film encroaches on 'narrative' cinema, but in a way which treats narrativization as problematic, not transparent. --M. L. G.
