Frank Film

USA, 1973 (MIFF 1974)

Director: Frank Mouris

The flood of visual images that accompany each phase of growing up in America—the spate of products and graphics eagerly taken in to satisfy our appetites—is the content of Frank's life, as it is for all of us. Frank's film is composed of an endless welling, growing. shifting flood of 11,592 collage shots, the continuity of his stream of object-consciousness.
