Faustfilm: An Opera Part 1

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

A collaboration between composer Rick Corrigan and Stan Brakhage, featuring Joel Haertling as Faust, Gretchen LeMaistre as Gretchen, Phillip Hathaway as Faust's friend, and Paul Lundahl as Servant. This is the realization of a 30-year-old-dream (grant applications and fragments of script >from the 1950s published in Brakhage's Metaphors on Vision), a wish of the young filmmaker to film a "modern" Faust (quite opposite of the traditional Fausts) which finally came to a fulfillment as unpredictable and as absolute as, say, three decades of living experience.
