Millennium Nomadic: The films of Storm De Hirsch at FMC

Wednesday, Jan. 9th 7:30pm,

@ The Film-makers’ Co-op

475 Park Ave South, 6th Fl, NY NY 10016

“A further exploration into the color of ritual, the color of thought; a journey through the underworld of sensory derangement.”–S.D.H.

An evening of short films by Storm De Hirsch presented by Millennium and the Film-makers’ Co-op.

De Hirsch used homespun effects that included hand-painting, emulsion-scratching and kaleidoscopic lenses to create unique poetic abstractions that she likened to prehistoric hieroglyphs. She was a published poet, feminist and a student of eastern religion; concerns which inform her films. A visionary filmmaker and important figure in the 60s underground, her films deserve a wider audience.
