Rites of Passage (1989) VHS NTSC, color, 4 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Philosophical

A hybrid film/video piece that seeks to distill the basic emotional components that characterize those phases in life when one goes through rapid and profound personal growth. The piece is divided into 3 segments which describe in symbolic/metaphorical terms the progressive events of a visionary experience that accompany an individual's Rite of Passage. Each segment is punctuated with an alchemal symbol which denotes a process used in the synthesis of gold. Gold signifies the objective of the alchemist, or the enlightenment of the vision quest.
