Our Lady of the Sphere
U.S.A. / 10:00 / 1969 / sound / colour
The mystical Lady with the orbital head moves through the carnival of life in a Surreal Adventure. A classic. Show it to anyone who likes movies.

"A beauty ... a genuinely mystical excercise." - Howard Thompson, N.Y. Times

"'Our Lady of the Sphere' - perhaps Jordan's most exquisitely perfect creation - is a color collage of roccoco imagery juxtaposed with symbols of the space age. The images metamorphose, transmute, interpenetrate and otherwise change with the fluid effervescence of bubbles rising out of water, punctuated by sudden flashes of light, alarm buzzers and abrupt visual surprises. It is a mystical, jewel-like creation, like a Joseph Cornell box come to life." - Thomas Albright, S.F. Chronicle
