Bridges-Go-Round

Bridges-Go-Round

Synopsis

"Shirley Clark was a founding figure of independent film and video movements in North America. In the classic avant-garde film Bridges-Go-Round, she captures the eerie atmosphere of metropolitan bridges. They are transformed through panning camera movements, colour tinting, layering and texturing into an abstract and magical dance. This extraordinary creation had two different originally commissioned scores.  The film is repeated on this print with the jazz and the electronic soundtracks respectively." – Film and Video Umbrella.
