Jud Yalkut

China Cat Sunflower (1973) 16mm, color, 4 min

Genre: Experimental

A Bootleg Film Production. With the Grateful Dead. As though one gradually becomes aware of the music of the universe, the Dead break into consciousness as their images merge with the oneness of light, becoming discrete momentarily, then dancing away to the cosmic rhythm that permeates reality. A film composed in the camera in the heat of intuition frame-by-frame, and then recomposed frame-by-frame in the optical printer. "Call Jud Yalkut an experimental filmmaker. He does not deal with story-telling film, but with the invisible-ideas and emotions. Nor does he structure them in a conventional manner. His aim is to disorganize your traditional methods of perception, and then to provide you with some new alternatives... One gets a feeling of vitality, and that the man is indeed into what he is making. He's got a firm grip of what he's doing and where he is heading." -- Syracuse, NY "New Times"
