Brakhage’s Trilogy

3 New Hand-Painted Films

San Francisco Art Institute

I Take These Truths (22″, 1994), We Hold These (11″, 1994) and I… (27″, 1995). Stan Brakhage’s recent output has mostly consisted of films painted by hand to achieve phenomenal plays of movement and depth. Brakhage has now completed his most ambitious hand-painted effort yet, three spellbinding and ecstatic films weaving together complex motifs and visual qualities.
