DIRECTED BY - Jim Shedden

Over the course of 40 years, avant-garde film legend Stan Brakhage made nearly 400 films. Using experimental techniques of his own creation and no sound, he changed the both way we think about film and what we expect from light passing through celluloid. From "Window Water Baby Moving" (1958) to later works, such as "Dante's Quartet" (1987) and Black Ice (1994), BRAKHAGE examines the techniques he used as well as the impact his work had on the film community. With an array of interviews with Brakhage himself, friends, family, admirers, and detractors, director Jim Shedden has created an insightful look at true artistic pioneer.
