The Cage

Directed by Sidney Peterson
United States, 1948
Avant-Garde, Short


In The Cage (1947) an artist (played by two different actors) removes his eye in an attempt to stop seeing conventionally, and the result is a deranged romp through San Francisco that includes reverse motion, anamorphic squeezing, inanimate objects that move, and narrative ruptures.
