Joel Schlemowitz is a wizard of cinema, and this collection of short experimental films is a marvel to behold. Each piece is a unique gem -- quirky, provocative, playful, often handmade, and always daring -- celebrating Joel's astonishing mastery of the tools of filmmaking, and his poetic grasp on the art of cinema." --Alan Berliner. "Joel creates cinema-poems that crack open the infinite. Tracing the jeweled veins of Gustave Moreau, J.K. Huysmans, and Gerard de Nerval, his work eludes the dark shadows of night & illuminates the evening with cascading colors and flickering dreamscapes." - Jennifer MacMillan, Curator, Invisible Film Series. Bonus footage: Filmmaker Interview by Jennifer MacMillan; The Film-Makers Coop's Move by Brian Frye; "Grand Magic Lantern Exhibition!" documentation by Jeanne Liotta.
