Directed by Shirley Clarke

A true artist on every end of the camera, Shirley Clarke combined her innate curiosity and dancer's aesthetic with her drive to battle injustice to make films that dazzle, challenge, and beguile the audience. THE MAGIC BOX is the culmination of Milestone Films’ “Project Shirley,” an eight-year effort to restore and renew the films of this extraordinary woman's career. This three-disc collection includes Clarke’s Academy Award®-winning documentary Robert Frost: A Lover’s Quarrel with the World, as well as her experimental shorts, “lost” films, unfinished projects and more.

Blu-ray Extras Include:


Brussels Loops, Bridges-Go-Round, Scary Time, Skyscraper, Butterfly, Tongues, Savage/Love, 24 Frames Per Second


Shirley Dancing – A Photo Gallery, Fear Flight, Jelly Roll Morton, Home Movies #20: Dance Tests, Dance in the Sun, In Paris Parks, This Is Not In Paris Parks, Decroux, Bullfight, Rose and the Players, A Moment in Love, Four Journeys Into Mystic Time
