About

Climaxing the film makers first period of work, QUIXOTE is a kind of summary and conclusion of a number of themes, etc., especially that of the hero... depicting Western orientation as essentially one of conquest. The film is conceived in a number of different styles and on a number of simultaneous levels. In four parts, one reel.

"More relevant than ever, Bruce Baillie's 'American Symphony' ... released in 1990 via an S-VHS master." – Frankfurter Zettung

"American as conquistador ...." – P. Adams Sitney

"– quixotic filmmaker become the hero of his own film." – S. Frey

One-year journey through the land of incessant progress, researching those sources which have given rise twenty years later to the essential question of survival.
