Sketches after Halle

Cathy Lee Crane

1997 | 00:13:00 | United States / Germany | English | B&W and Color | Stereo | 4:3 | 16mm film

Collection: Single Titles

Tags: Autobiography, Eastern European, Memory

A collision of separate pasts, this film pieces together fragments of the director's own images and text from a 1991 visit to the East German town of Halle with those produced by Bauhaus painter Lyonel Feininger in 1931.  A meditation on emotional memory, the film interrogates the ability of images to document personal history.
