Editorial Reviews

A collection of visionary short films by the acclaimed experimental filmmaker. DVD includes 7 films.

"Li: The Patterns of Nature" -employs time-lapse, microscopy, animation and cymatic imagery to explore the Chinese concept of "Li"- organic patterning, and the underlying inherent order of the physical world as revealed in its natural patterns and rhythms.

"Form and Void" -an abstract experimental animation composed of thousands of rapidly strobing inkblot patterns- a trance film.

"Rites of Passage" -a poetic examination of spiritual death and rebirth.

"Kirlian Experiment No. 3"- employs Kirlian or Electromagnetic Discharge Videography, named for the Russian Parapsychology researchers who popularized its use.

"Hidden World" -explores the macro and microscopic life in and around a pond.

"Dance of the Phosphenes"- inspired by the neuro-optical phenomenon known as phosphenes- those luminous patterns that we see when our eyes are closed- this silent animated film journeys through universes large and small in just 90 seconds.

Special Feature: The Making of "Li" with director's commentary. The unusual cinematic techniques that were used in "Li: The Patterns of Nature" are explained by the director who won the Best Cinematography Award at the 46th Ann Arbor Film Festival.
