Breath


Rental Format(s): 16mm

"BREATH consists of nothing more than shots of a newspaper blowing in the wind of empty New York streets. But Zdravic doesn't treat this subject with the wispy lyricism of Brakhage or Marie Menken. The newpaper is just a newspaper - a 'found object' a la Duchamp. The soundtrack, as in all Zdravic 's films, was recorded on the spot - its on/off click as each shot is taken making for musique concrete accompaniment." - David Ehrenstein, Los Angeles Herald Examiner

"What is most striking about Zdravic's work right now is a vivid sense of how the frame of the screen traps - and thus compresses and heightens - the energy of movement." - Amy Taubin, The Soho Weekly News
