Notes about Dripping Water


Quote about Dripping Water

"This film is 'personal film'. It is very intimate, solitary play. It is beautifully, warmly enclosed. The color! But most important: the filmmaker is seen making the film (which you are seeing) of herself and her magical manipulations of the camera, of mirrors, lenses, water, various objects, and herself."
-- Michael Snow (source)
