Stan Brakhage was a singular figure in American film; he created hundreds of films, mostly silent, and each an adventure in visual perception. As he once wrote, “The artist is an explorer of his own dualities. He embarks on as many adventures as there are in a day.” This selection reveals the breadth of his ambition, with themes including history, nature, and art.
