Description du film [en anglais] :
« This experiment in point of view, narrative structure, and time attempts to reproduce cinematically Gertude Stein's notion of a 'continuous present.' In four rhyming shots/scenes, it suggests the development of a relationship over many years. Based on biographical details from the lives of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, with improvised performances by Jackie Burroughs and Anne Anglin. »

Citation de la réalisatrice [en anglais]

« After months of thinking and reading, I set out to make a short film, this time real fiction [Gertrude & Alice in Passing]. The central questions for me at the time were: (1) how to deal with the illusionism of cinema and our cultural lust for the illusion of reality; (2) how to circumvent the editing process, which ellides space and time invisibly; (3) how to allow the characters, the subjects of the film, to remain whole—unfragmented—and to collaborate in the creation of the film (a principle I still find simpatico); and (4) how to acknowledge the inevitable voyeurism of the camera and of the audience. »
