Changing Voices

Film as Art
Light and shadow, rhythm and movement, pacing, anticipation, persistence of vision: all are elements which singularly and in combination distinguish film as 'The Seventh Art.' The striking visual beauty, the passion of the artists and the politics of the work are displayed through the celluloid's most misunderstood but perhaps most challenging and satisfying form: the experimental film.
