Centuries of June

United States, 1955
Avant-Garde, Documentary, Short


An old house was to be torn down. Cornell was interested in depicting the beauty of this fine old structure, but it seems dead and lifeless and cut off from the life all around it. We see children and workmen and insects. The neighborhood really is alive, but the house has had its day.
