Four Films by Phil Costa Cummins (1987) VHS NTSC, color, 26 min

Genre: Experimental

VIGO & BROADWAY (1985, VHS, color/so, 5m): See film description above. VOYAGER (1987, VHS, color/so, 3m): Shot in my mother's living room a short time after my father's death. The film combines images of objects in the room with family photographs, old films and soft light refractions in green and gold. The images suggest the contemplative nature of thought-memory; a kind of universal state of consciousness in which all memories are melded into one. ANGELS (1988, color/si, 2m): See film description above. SMOKY'S JOURNAL (1989, color/si, 16m) A silent diary film shot while living in a rural area from the summer of 1988 through the spring of 1989. States of mind are expressed in the film through visual relationships to animals and nature and through the play of light on Kodachrome 40. Changes in mood are denoted by the structural changes in editing, from languid and pastoral to anxious and frenetic, and by the seasonal changes in nature.
