Co-maker: Bradley Eros "M'elevasti! Lift me up!"-- Ezra Pound Hand-developed meditations on being and movement, as inspired by Gysin's Dreammachine, Sufi mysticism, and early cinema. A knowledge of the fragility of existence mirrors the tenuousness of the material. The film itself becomes the site to experience impermanence, and to revel in the unfixed image. Seen and unseen meet in the place between image and emulsion.     "... The taking and making of images is seen as a passionate pursuit: religious,magical,mysterious."-- Kathy Geritz, Pacific Film Archives
