Inspired by Man Ray’s “shadowcast” experiments, LEN LYE discovered a whole range of new applications for this process in Colour Cry and created the best and most elaborate “shadowcast” film ever made.
For years he tracked down materials and experimented with new effects. The complex textures and shapes he creates reflect LEN LYE ‘s masterful sense of abstract movement. Its colour is very pure. The dramatic music interacts with the visuals to create a very powerful film.
