DIE is a silent meditation on consciousness past death. It is a continuous flow of image uninterrupted by cutting, a tactile and erotic film in which a man knows the earth as lover through a newly-awakened touch, a new multilayered seeing. It is a mystical document of a peak experience in life, climaxing in ego-death.
The actor in the film is Charles MacDermed, my mentor of that time, now my friend.
Award: First Prize, University of Santa Clara Film Festival, 1968.
