Film Programme 4: Space

Guy Sherwin Thomas Köner Various Artists Takehisa Kosugi

Tony Conrad: The Flicker

Tony Conrad

One of the most startling cinematic debuts on record, The Flicker is more a hallucination than a film, an out of body experience and riotous celebration of visual harmonics frequencies. An experiment in perception, come with your mind and eyes open.
