Stan Brakhage the realm buster

Brakhage cover

Edited by Marco Lori and Esther Leslie, published 09.01.2018 by John Libbey Press ISBN: 978-0861967285. Includes my essay on Brakhage’s use of black in several of his films, including some from the Roman Numeral Series, Arabic 14 and the extraordinary Passage Through: A Ritual (1990), which consists of fifty minutes of running time, for all but about a minute of which the screen is black. This is perhaps Brakhage’s most radical film and is certainly his most minimal. Book cover blurb below.
