Form Evolution

USA, 1952 (MIFF 1957, Experiments from America)

Director: Martin Metal

In demonstrating how forms change their appearance with different points of view, with different angles of illumination, the film be¬comes increasingly abstract, ending up in a whirl of shapes dancing in striking rhythmic patterns.
