Quiet energy (water creatures) living near the state hospital where I work. An impressionistic film harking back to the primeval time before the phi-phenomenon shifted our movement through time.

"A film of great beauty and deceptive simplicity, Jerry Orr's POND is one of the purest and most gratifying film landscapes I've seen in recent years. In real time, a fixed camera records the movement of light and color on the surface of a pond in autumn. The viewer is presented with a palette of seductively warm hues reflected on the surface of the pond by the leaves of surrounding trees. As ripples of water gently massage the reflected image, the pond slowly becomes the locus of extraordinary transcendental energies, ultimately transporting the viewer to a sublimely heightened awareness. An eternal verity plays on the surface of the pond. For those willing to plunge completely into it, the rewards will be profound." - Albert Kilchesty
