VISIONS OF A CITY
EUTERPE • 6m 7s
Originally photographed in 1957 but edited in 1978. The protagonist, poet Michael McClure, emerges from the all-reflection imagery of glass shop and car windows, bottles, mirrors and so forth, in scenes which are also accurate portraits of both McClure and the city of San Francisco of the late-1950s. Simultaneously a lyric and mystical film, building to a crescendo of rhythmically intercut shots of the face of McClure seemingly trapped on the glazed surface of the city. Music by William Moraldo.
