Hart of London @ the Charles Theatre

Hart of London by Jack Chambers
Monday, July 5, 2010
The Charles Theater

Rare screening, one night only:
The Hart of London is an experimental film that has been enormously important to those that have had the opportunity to see it. It's a film that grapples with the complexities of life, birth, death, community, family, time and history and the transcendental beauty and wonder of it all.

Avis Lang writes " The Hart of London is one of Chamber's masterpieces; it is not a narrative unfolding at a suitable aesthetic distance but a metaphoric process that one undergoes, that even the artist finds himself undergoing in the presence of what he has made." Stan Brakhage calls it one of the greatest films ever made.
