Free Radicals

Directed by Len Lye
United States, 1958
Animation, Avant-Garde, Short


In arguably his greatest film, Lye reduces the medium to its most basic elements by scratching designs on black film…and synchroniz[ing] the images to traditional African music (a field tape of the Bagirmi tribe).
