Gaudi & Cezannescapes

Sale Format(s): DVD

Three experimental shorts informed by the styles of the artists they celebrate. (the two most recent are mini-DV's inspired by the work of Gaudi, the other, created 15 years previously, is a single-system sound, edited- [mostly] -in-camera Super-8).

GAUDI (2006, DVD, 2:40 min.) -
Gaudi's great La Sagrata Familia begun in Barcelona in the 1880's, still remains a vital work in progress.
