Ec: Film No. 12 (Heaven and Earth Magic Feature)

Jan 06 | Sun | 6:30 |
View Website

Preserved by Anthology Film Archives with support from the National Film Preservation Foundation and Cineric, Inc. A masterpiece of collage animation that, after all these years, continues to boggle the mind. "NO. 12 can be seen as one moment – certainly the most elaborately crafted moment – of the single alchemical film which is Harry Smith's life work. In its seriousness, its austerity, it is one of the strangest and most fascinating landmarks in the history of cinema. Its elaborately constructed soundtrack in which the sounds of various figures are systematically displaced onto other images reflects Smith's abiding concern with auditory effects." –P. Adams Sitney
