Short Film of the Day - Flight (1997)

This 7-minute experimental film by Les LeVeque will be an endurance test for some, absolute bliss for others. It's currently featured as a bonus on the Wendy and Lucy DVD, as W & L director Kelly Reichardt is also a Bard film professor, and produces and promotes many films by her students and colleagues.

What appears to be a few frames from the first moon landing is here exploited and "remixed" to dazzling effect, and accompanied by synched, pulsating noise audio. The images stutter and leap in time to the sonic assault, or vice versa. Click the link above for more information about the director, and more films (viewable as tiny pop-ups.)
