Gerry Wentz: Water Marks, 1981, 41 min. An autobiographical film in which the filmmaker, during a trip home to visit his family, recalls the religious atmosphere (Fundamentalism) that he grew up in. Memories of childhood in subtitles are juxtaposed and contrasted with images and sounds of the family, the family dogs, religious TV programs, and “created environments” of allegorical significance.

Gary Doberman: Domicile, 1977, 7½ min. “This is a beautiful film, factually, with a lovely shifting counterpoint in the pacing.” -Robert Creeley; and Marks of Reference, 1980, 11½ min. “As I said, but wish to imprint, Marks of Reference is one of your very greatest films to me, Gary – a breakthru for my comprehension of yr working over these ‘inner rectangles’ for years in your films…” -Stan Brakhage.
