Walter Ungerer

Meet Me Jesus (1966) 16mm, color, 13.25 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Found Footage, Hand-processed

The theme is apparently the birth and growth of civilization, its ultimate destruction and rebirth; however, MEET ME, JESUS is actually about loss: the loss of innocence, dignity and hope. The film's final irony is our usual compensation: "If these wings should fail me Lord, meet me with another pair." MEET ME, JESUS is a compilation film using found footage as well as original material and hand painting on film.
