Program 2 is a screening of 16mm works best known as the “Pittsburgh Trilogy,” “a trio of acknowledged masterworks that represent a radical approach to the concept of a cinematic document (as opposed to documentary) rooted in subjective observation. By training his eyes and the film medium on three subjects he felt were elusive, inscrutable, even fearful in their universality, Brakhage sought to gain some empathic foothold–if not an understanding–in these realms of authority (police), illness (hospital) and death (morgue).” – UCLA Film & Television Archive

Please Note: The Act of Seeing With One’s Own Eyes contains graphic autopsy imagery.
