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 DANTES 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 Collections BY BRAKHAGE DVD. Executive produced by Ron Mann (GRASS, TWIST), Jim Sheddens stunning, bittersweet portrait explores the depth and breadth of Brakhages genius and the exquisite splendor of his films.
