Glaze of Cathexis

Directed by Stan Brakhage
United States, 1990
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

This hand-painted work is easily the most minutely detailed ever given to me to do, for it traces (as best I’m able) the hypnagogic after-effect of psychological cathexis as designated by Freud in his first (and unfinished) book on the subject – Toward a Scientific Psychology.
