Yggdrasill: Whose Roots Are Stars in the Human Mind

Directed by Stan Brakhage
United States, 1997
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

This film, a combination of hand painting and photography, is a fulsome exposition of the themes of “Dog Star Man.” In that early epic I had envisioned The World Tree as dead, fit only for firewood; and at the end “Dog Star Man” I had chopped it up amidst a flurry of stars.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
