Stan Brakhage

He Was Born, He Suffered, He Died (1974) 16mm, color, 7.5 min

Genre: Experimental

The quote was Joseph Conrad answering a critic who found his books too long. Conrad replied that he could write a novel on the inside of a match-book-cover, thus (as above), but that he preferred to elaborate. The Life of the film scratches on black leader. The elaboration of color tonalities is as the mind's eye responds to hieroglyph.
