Govinda

Lewis Klahr

USA, 1999
23 minutes, Colour, Opt.
Available formats: 16mm

A three act countercultural coming of age melodrama, Told from a generational rather than individual’s point of view. Beginning with appropriated student, super 8 footage of a 1970’s alternative high school and finishing with super 8 footage I shot a month after college graduation of my brother’s hippie wedding, Govinda charts a path from innocence to too much experience.
