Synchromy No. 4: Escape

United States, 1937
Short, Animation, Avant-Garde


Mary Ellen Bute’s first color film tells a story in abstraction of an orange/red triangle imprisoned behind a grip of vertical and horizontal lines under a sky-blue expanse, perhaps representing freedom. J.S. Bach’s Toccada (in D Minor) adds dramatic tension to the visual variables in motion."
