This continuation of my biography is composed of film photographed by many people: Bruce Baillie, Jane Brakhage, Larry Jordan, and Stan Phillips among others. Most of the footage is drawn from some 20,000 feet of ‘home movies’, ‘out-takes’, and the like, I’ve salvaged of my photography, over the years.
It is of the Brakhage family coming into being.
It is composed in the light of those electrical traces we call memory, and it is as true to that ‘thought process’ as I was able to make it. This project was supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. – S.B.
