Ethna's Suite, So Long

Rental Format(s): 16mm film / DVD-R

This film portrait of Ethna Duffy (and myself by implication) summarizes several years between us. It consists of images collected between 1974 and 1980 edited in relation to a soundtrack which consists of an audio landscape of telephonic interruptions as they are interwoven with Ethna's extemporaneous observations recorded on a telephone answering machine between 1977 and 1978. This film, I think, reflects our mutual love and "lunacy" which was often deflected and by inference indirectly located.

A partial transcript of the soundtrack from this film has been published in the magazine Motion Picture 1, no. 3 (Winter/Spring 1987).
