Wilson writes, "The works amount to an ethical disturbance in which the involvement of intelligent, amoral actors complicates a humanist legacy that understands the world as having been given for our needs and created in our image. From these revisionary vantage points, this stagnant legacy begins to contradict itself, amounting to an ecologically murderous, even suicidal tendency. I also sense an order of ought, a program for escape." Stan Brakhage MOTHLIGHT (1963, 4 min, 16mm. Preserved by Anthology Film Archives.)
