"The camera shoots from below, plunging upward into the center of motion as if it were avid to join the messy tangle of struggling bodies lifting upward . . .The screen itself becomes a metaphor." Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times.
Made from the same shoot as For God While Sleeping, the wordless Transport is a visual poem in which a young man and woman move from dead weight (death) to transcendent flight (rebirth) distilling the energy of extremes of the early 1970s, from the Vietnam war to space exploration. The film has been screened at Columbia University, the Austrian (Oesterreichischef) Film Museum and more as exemplifying the relation of post-modern dance and minimalism to the politics of the 1970s
