Stan Brakhage

Sincerity: Reel 3 (1978) 16mm, color, 35 min

Genre: Experimental

Project at 24 fps Made with assistance from the National Endowment for the Arts. In the autobiographical traditional of earlier SINCERITIES, this film takes up the light-threads of our living 14 years ago when the Brakhage family found Home and 'settled', like they say, into some sense of permanence. This quality of living in one place tends to destroy most senses of chronology; thus, along lines-of-thought of growing and shifting physicality, events CAN seem to be occurring simultaneously (a thought-process 'kin to that of THE DOMAIN OF THE MOMENT), and the memory of such a time IS prompted and sustained by details of living usually overlooked or taken-for-granted (such as Proust's cookie which prompted 'The Remembrance of Things Past'). Michael McClure's 'Fleas' and Andrew Noren's THE EXQUISITE CORPSE III were additional sources of inspiration for the making of this work.
