1933

Directed by Joyce Wieland
Canada, 1967 (avant-garde, 4 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"The film offers a street scene shot in New York City in the late 1960s from a loft window on the second floor. This shot, filmed mostly in fast motion but occasionally slowed to normal speed, is repeated in its entirety 10 times and is accompanied by dissonant raucous music, evoking the silent-film-like humour in fast motion human movement."

Quote about 1933

"The repeated images are such that they appear to be different each time; to be expanding. 1933 has a machine-mechanical doll rhythmic-like structure."
-- Robert Cowan (source)
