Visions of Meditation

Stan Brakhage

Comments

Editor's note: Stan Brakhage's Visions in Meditation is in fact a series of four different films (and therefore technically ineligible as a single vote under our rules  – but this one slipped through). The four films are: Vision in Meditation 1, Vision in Meditation 2: Mesa Verde, Vision in Meditation 3: Plato’s Cave and Vision in Meditation 4: D.H. Lawrence. We've used the BFI database entry for Vision 1 as a link, but this was the only vote for any of them.
