The Opening


Excerpt from Chants & Dances For Hand

"This is the first section from a large work constructed from material made in Haiti, mostly on Hi-8 video. Hand is my son. He’s now 16. The initial production was partially supported by a grant from the Jerome Foundation. My venture in Haiti was to some extent inspired by Maya Deren. I was searching for traditional forms that related to the structures of my previous films. And something else." – Larry Gottheim
