Edward Owens

Private Imaginings and Narrative Facts (1966) 16mm, color, 8.75 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists

"A montage of still and moving images, mixing and alternating black people and white people, fantasy and reality, a presidential suite and a mother's kitchen: a sensitive, poetic evocation in the manner of the film-maker's "Remembrance". Brilliantly colored and nostalgic, it comprises a magical transformation of painterly collage and still photographic sensibility into filmic time and space." -- Charles Boultenhouse "(Edward Owens) may well be one of the few for whom 'amateur' and 'professional' need have no significance whatsoever: true to his own native talents, with grim determination uncanny, whether the mind in the arts is for or against beauty or its opposite twin, chaos. So that with each subsequent struggle to complete a film he will leave us breathless with anticipation for his next work." -- Gregory Markopoulos on Edward Owens' film AUTREFOIS
