This Saturday, the UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present works by influential filmmaker Stan Brakhage (1933-2003). Brakhage's experimental films explore "subjective observation" and employ techniques like collage and crossfaded frames. Watching a Brakhage film is what seeing your life flash before eyes might look like, with rapidly shifting frames and ethereal figures.
Filmmaker Werner Herzog will be at the theater in person to discuss Brakhage's "The Pittsburgh Documents" and the artist's life.
