Faust's Other: An Idyll (1988) 16mm, color, 40.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Faust Part 2 reveals the modern Faust in a romantic interlude, an idyll (from Greek idein, to see); also, a journey of the id. A sense of story is inferred through the complex interweaving of human gesture, expression, and bodily movement within vibrantly shifting colors and rhythmic development, creating multiple levels of metaphorical meaning. A collaborative work with paintings of Emily Ripley and soundtrack by Joel Haertling.
