Study No. 9

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

"This was the first film of Oskar's work which was worked on by someone else, in this case, his brother Hans. The basic designs for forms and movements were all [made] by Oskar, and Hans was assigned to complete the sequences, filling in the shadings on the outlined shapes as an apprentice, learning exercise.

"The images in STUDY NO. 9 are synchronized with Brahms' 'Hungarian Dance No. 6,' probably in response to the success of STUDY NO. 7. The graceful figures perform charming choreography which makes STUDY NO. 9 one of the most pleasing of the series. The most memorable moment is a sequence in which dots and rays bounce off a semi-circle, flickering and dividing in conscious interplay with their own after-images, a further extension into pure optics of Fischinger's ideas about atom-splitting." - Dr. William Moritz, Film Culture
