See Saw Seems

Rental Format(s): Digital File

Juxtaposed to what we see, is what we think we see... that is, the memory of the dream is as real as the dream itself, but it is completely different from the dream. This film is an experiment in animation, in which the eye of the viewer travels deeper and deeper and deeper into each scene, finding new relationships and visual metaphors in what appears, at first sight, a simple scene. Symbolic intention is the mother of symbolic retention... that is, sight you are... if you think you are.

Selected Screenings: Lincoln Center Film Festival, NY, 1967; London Film Festival, 1967
