The Birth of Magellan: Cadenza XIV

Directed by Hollis Frampton
United States, 1980
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

CADENZA XIV: the laugh track…variously suggests a partially displaced relation to the silent comedy in CADENZA I, a reaction to the blatancy of the sexual symbolism and perhaps even an irreverent reflection on the emotion-laden symbological practice of the poetic tradition of personal filmmaking.
