Brakhage Also

Tim points out that there’s a new Criterion DVD of Stan Brakhage available. Good year for experimental film (so far). The ones I really really want to find are a couple of short things I saw at the London Film Makers’ Co-operative screenings in Camden about 10 years ago. I can’t remember the titles, but I think they were by John Tappendam, about whom I know nothing. One was black and white, high contrast, the other colour. Both were formalist things probably made by filming the shadows cast by hanging mobiles or similar. Very fine.
