Larry Jordan has long been known as a pioneering independent animator whose recreations of 19th century imagery combine a rare visual wit and nuance with bizarre surreal juxtapositions. Sophie’s Place is the culmination of many years’ work and his most ambitious effort to date: “From the first ‘pun’ of the film of ‘place’ thru to the return to the ‘garden’ at the end of the film, “Sophie’s” as nearly perfect as ‘epic’ can BE, as ‘dailiness’-so-perceived (i.e. the transformations, the alchemy, yes) always is.”—Stan Brakhage.
