Hold Me While I’m Naked (stills), dir. George Kuchar, 1966
Stan Brakhage’s - Dante Quartet (1987) Music added by M.P. Surber. I’m not sure if the composer realizes this or not, but Brakhage was pretty adamant about his films being “silent”. He felt the images themselves produced a naturally enjoyed internal rhythm inside the viewer’s experience.
Still, one of my favorites of Stan’s work. This period of his work centered around hand-painting each frame. Once Brakhage contracted cancer in the 90’s he attributed the cause of the disease to carcinogenic elements found in the pigments he was using. #takingabulletforyourmuse
