THE ADORATION OF SUZY was made from 35mm slides and represents a technical breakthrough in the use of light to create drama. Accident plays a major role in the results. The film is devoted to Suzanne Perry, who at the time the slides were made by Howard Kanovitz and myself, had been three years in the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus. The movie reflects her special character and my special reaction to it. It is based on the concept of a woman, of her body and her psyche.
Note: This film can also be projected at silent speed.
