Rental Format(s): 16mm film

TRIVIA was Brakhage's choice out of all my films up to that point to be shown at the School of the Chicago Art Institute on a program with a Werner Herzog film. There was a definite poetic justice to this unplanned coincidental combination of TRIVIA with a Herzog film. TRIVIA could be described as the Old World in the New World, Bruegel's Icarus having a "bad day" in the New World, a New World Aesthetic response to Herzog's Old World sentimental Romanticism of the New World.

"There is myth, there are objects, and only for a moment can they meet, inform each other, and then part. If myth must inevitably unravel and if, at a moment in time, meet its diminished successor, that moment is this film." - Ed Schwartz
