Marie Menken 1910-1970
Visual Variations on Noguchi (1945)
"Poetry of natural sound" score by Lucia Dlugoszewski.
"By use of hand-held, ambulating camera, unusual editing and a startling experimental score by Lucille Dlugozewski, the sculptures of the famous Japanese-American artist, Isamu Noguchi, are given audacious movement in a controversial art-film experiment." -- Cinema 16
"Never before have I seen such purely dynamic treatment of sculpture in film. Marie Menken has successfully transformed Noguchi's sculpture into her own medium." -- Norman McLaren (The Film-Makers' Cooperative)
