Treatment for a film in fifteen scenes by John Zorn( Visual )

Written in 1981, John Zorn's intensely personal film treatment receives imaginative and unique interpretations by four cutting edge independent US filmmakers, two from the East Coast and two from the West Coast. Zorn's perplexing list of 254 images inspires drama, humor and mystery, and the films range from experimental narrative to found footage collage and cutout animation
Altair( Visual )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artist's statement: "Altair offers a cutout animation version of color film noir. The images were culled from six, late forties issues of Cosmopolitan magazine and set to an almost 4 minute segment of Stravinsky's 'Firebird' (looped twice) to create a sinister, perfumed world. As in my 1988 visit to this genre I̲n The Month of Crickets ̲the narrative is highly smudged leaving legible only the larger signposts of the female protagonists story. The viewer is encouraged to speculate on the nature and details of the woman's battle with large malevolent societal forces and her descent into an alcoholic swoon. However, it is important to note that all of the above was only discovered on the editing table. What motivated me during the shooting of this film, which was largely improvisatory, was a fascination with the color blue and some intangible association it has for me with both California and the 1940's."

Screen play: "A narrator relates the Japanese tale of two lovers who defy their families and society to be together. The tale ends happily, until something happens to make this tale truly Japanese in character"--Internet movie database. The pharaoh's belt: ""In his most masterful film to date, Lewis Klahr provides a lesson in modern hieroglyphics, assembling collages of contemporary demons and divinities in the guise of advertising images culled from a consumer culture's larger-than-life presentation of its products and the ecstasies they offer. These hyperbolic presences with their radiant colors and alternate promises and pitfalls provide the landscape for a childhood quest that teeters between nightmare and promised land, as Klahr's characters negotiate a labor of extrication from the morass of Betty Crocker chocolate icing, formica kitchens and parental phantoms toward a mastery of the imagination and the attaining of true love"--Tom Gunning, Canyon Cinema. Milk of amnesia: "Watching a film like the aptly titled Milk of Amnesia, which challenges the audience to recall hundreds of bizarre visual references flashing before their eyes at breakneck speed, is a perceptional game: 'The technical goal of Milk of Amnesia was to see what happened to the viewer's [equilibrium] when sequential images were painted in different styles and colours, ' [Scher] explains. 'My theory was that the figurative continuity of the action would rise above all the textural collisions of style"--Eye magazine, no. 60

Her fragrant emulsion( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Her Fragrant Emulsion is an obsessional homage to the 60's film actress Mimsy Farmer. The film's visceral collage images act as a metaphor for sensuality and move in and out of sync with the soundtrack to evoke the distancing and intimacy cycles that are common in love relationships."--Leaf K
