Directed by Jim Shedden

From 1952 until his death in 2003, Stan Brakhage created almost 400 films. Working completely outside of the mainstream, he consistently redefined cinematic art with such celebrated pieces as WINDOW WATER BABY MOVING (his first wife giving birth) and MOTHLIGHT (leaves and butterflies taped to celluloid), as well as a host of films hand-painted in shockingly brilliant color including DANTE’S QUARTET and BLACK ICE.

Juxtaposing archival footage spanning 35 years, as well as rare film excerpts and vintage and contemporary interviews with Brakhage, his friends, family, colleagues and critics, BRAKHAGE is the perfect complement to the Criterion Collection’s BY BRAKHAGE DVD. Executive produced by Ron Mann (GRASS, TWIST), Jim Shedden’s stunning, bittersweet portrait explores the depth and breadth of Brakhage’s genius and the exquisite splendor of his films.

-"BRAKHAGE ON FILM"
A 1965 documentary by Arnold Gassan and Carlos Seegmiller
-"LEGENDARY EPICS, YARNS AND FABLES: STAN BRAKHAGE"
An early-1970s program featuring Brakhage musing on filmmaking and sound
-BRAKHAGE EXCERPT GUIDE
