In QUICK BILLY, the experience of transformation between life and death, death and birth (or rebirth) in four reels. "[Bruce] Baillie once related a dream in which he, as a doctor, had to suffer the illnesses and then die the deaths of all people," writes Kathleen Michael Connor. "Any human being willing to take on responsibilities for the deaths of others cannot harm them, and this is what the viewer instinctively knows." Film artist Bruce Baillie has committed his whole life to creating a more peaceful world through his art. One of the founders of Canyon Cinema (and, by extension, San Francisco Cinematheque), his works are in the Library of Congress and considered national treasures.
