Rudy Burckhardt
Lurk (1964)
1965, black and white, 36.5 min.
“Happy with his luscious daughter Aurora in a rustic setting, Professor Borealis has devised an improved brain and is ready to transplant it. The humor is tenderly black. Burckhardt’s fusion of documentary-type photography with fairytale storyline is nearer Keystone than avant-garde with its visual honesty and particular virtuosity.” —Edwin Denby. With Edwin Denby, Red Grooms, Mimi Gross. Music selected by Frank O’Hara.
