Sexual Meditations: Open Field

Stan Brakhage

USA, 1971 - 1973
23 minutes, Colour, Silent
Available formats: 16mm

This film takes all the masturbatory themes of the previous Sexual Meditations back to the source of pre-adolescent dreams. Open Field is in the mind, of course, and exists as a weave of trees, grasses, waters and bodies poised and fleeting at childhood’s end. The scene is lit as by sun and moon alike and haunted by the pursuant adult. – S.B.
