Our Lady of the Sphere: 1969 Experimental Collage Film by Lawrence Jordan


Lawrence Jordan began his filmmaking career by learning from and working with the great artist and filmmaker, Joseph Cornell. This is a 1972 film that is a mysterious trip through a subconscious world of imagery that suggests hidden communications and magic behind observable reality. His technique is mainly focused on using cutout illustration collages. I like his work because it leaves things unsaid, unexplained and it does not work too hard at being funny.

You can watch a lot of Jordan’s films at Mubi and read more about his life and work.
