Synopsis


Volumes could be written about this film which stands in length and complexity as Fischinger's major work. It is perhaps the only one of his films which is truly and completely (or purely) abstract (or absolute). Its images are actors in a complex being which modulates and transforms itself before our eyes, an object and an experience at the same time, something we must feel and contemplate, and meditate through. (William Moritz, Film Culture)

Oskar Fischinger


Oskar Fischinger (1900-1967) was a German filmmaker who made abstract animation films in the period from 1920s to 1030s. As a major figure in the development of filmic abstraction and ‘visual music’, as an inventor and experimentalist he was a pioneer in multimedia live performances and in introducing innovations to animation techiques. He emigrated to the US in 1936 where he lived until his death.
