Shirley Clarke: Early Works 1
Early, groundbreaking shorts from an experimental pioneer.
In the context of this retrospective, this collection of Shirley Clarke’s first shorts forms an essential piece of the puzzle. From the very beginning, her love of choreography is central; and through this comprehensive selection, the development of that passion into a cinematic technique is clearly charted. These inspirational films form the staircase Clarke built and climbed, which would eventually lead up to the heights of her incredible feature debut The Connection. NGF Like this?
