Storm de Hirsch - Mythology for the Soul

Second release in Re:voir’s series about the New York Film-makers’ Cooperative Collection. Storm de Hirsch (1912–2000) was a key figure in the New York avant-garde film scene of the 1960s, and one of the founding members of the Film-Makers’ Cooperative. Like many experimental filmmakers at the time, de Hirsch did not begin her artistic career as a filmmaker; she was a poet who had published at least two collections by 1965. She turned to filmmaking because she wanted to find a new mode of expression for her thoughts that went beyond words on the page.

‘A major work in terms of style, structure, graphic invention, image manipulation and symbolic ritual. Short abbreviated dream-like moments, fused together by the tension and the dynamic of motion-picture time.’ (Stan Vanderbeek)

‘A further exploration into the color of ritual, the color of thought; a journey through the underworld of sensory derangement. A very beautiful work! The abstractions drawn directly on film are like the paintings of Miro; moving at full speed to the rhythm of an African beat.’ (Dominique Noguez)

‘Dedicated to all the magic makers of the world who weave a talisman for man’s rebirth in his house of breath.’ (Storm De Hirsch)
