Passage Through: Some Soundtracks for Brakhage

Series Site

""Stan Brakhage’s body of work encompasses more than 350 films – the majority of which are purposefully and powerfully silent. Though Brakhage considered his films “visual music,” and was greatly inspired by musicians – notably Bach, John Cage, Olivier Messiaen, Carl Ruggles, James Tenney, and Edgard Varèse – his filmography includes fewer than 30 sound works. While a fair amount of his sound films are shown in our Essential Cinema repertory cycle, this series highlights several of his seldom-seen works created in collaboration with musicians." —AFA
