Fragment of Seeking

USA, 1946 (MIFF 1963, Curtis Harrington Retrospective)

Director: Curtis Harrington

A revelatory episode from the life of an adolescent Narcissus, in which he discovers the true nature of his desire. The world of the mind and that of exterior reality are fused so that they become indistinguishable from each other; the result is a film which presents the psychological essence of a moving personal experience.
