How does knowledge of specific visual and literary artworks from the past influence what we make today? When and why do words inspire images? How do our personal reactions to works of art inflect our handling of the materials of cinema and help determine the formal choices we make? Professor Gatten will speak about the trajectories of creative process in films by Brakhage and Reeves.
