Hand Catching Lead

Directed by Richard Serra
United States, 1968
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

Echoing the vertical movement of the film through the projector, pieces of sheet lead fall into the image field. Serra’s hand opens and closes as it tries to catch them, and when it succeeds, immediately lets them go again, reproducing the intermittent advance of the film.
