Abstract:

In this strange little film, Marie Menken photographs billowy flames superimposed over microscopic medical footage of writhing spermatozoa. Her humorous juxtaposition depicts a fiery death-dance of wily males seeking each other in wanton abandon. Ultimately the film is a poignant reminder of the brevity of life. "Filmmaking was a natural evolution while I was engaged in painting, particularly since I was primarily concerned in capturing light, its effect on textured surfaces, its glowing luminesence in the dark, the enhancement of juxtaposed color, persistence of vision and eye fatigue."--Marie Menken.
