Directed by Rudy Burckhardt
United States, 1969
Drama, Comedy, Avant-Garde


The story of a shipwrecked baby reared by a kindly animal. See Tarzam, the beast-man, invent the art of painting. He meets his first human. His scene deepens from innocence to corruption and to final violence. Taylor is sublime, as always. The text is his, of course.
