The Bed (1968 | 20 minutes | COLOR | SOUND)

Camera, Bill Desloge; Music, Warner Jepson.

“One of the most lyrically erotic of independent films, THE BED is a merry allegory which celebrates impudently and imaginatively just about everything that could happen in bed (and some things that couldn’t) – birth, young love, loneliness, dreams and death, amid all sorts of hanky-panky from fetishism to plain old lechery.” – LA Free Press

“Broughton’s finest film by far. It exists in a state of play fully realized.” – Stan Brakhage
