PAN OF THE LANDSCAPE

Directed by Christopher Becks
United States, 2005
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

Christopher Becks’s Pan of the Landscape uses gorgeous Brakhage-like painting on film to un-Brakhage-like ends: spectacular skies combine with the slow, mechanical movement of a silhouetted form to produce a biting melancholy, as if Becks is mourning the film’s removal from the world it glimpses.
