Song for Mixed Choir
Canada / 7:00 / 1980 / sound / b/w
"Song" is laid over two picture rolls, printed together. The first magnifies the grain of the film, filling the screen with the circling constituents of its material base. The second roll draws a succession of figures from a dimly lit nightlife. There is a dance, a house party and a subway turnstile moving toward the most domestic kind of horror, a horror of the commonplace and the mundane, the horrors of toothbrush and comb and electric lamp. "Song" is an image of cinema's prehistory - before "in the beginning was the word" but also: before the domain of picture took shape in my imagination. First film.
