Samuel Beckett, Tony Woods

Australia, 1995 (MIFF 1995, Experimental)

Director: Tony Woods

The "observing ear" of conceptual painter and film maker Tony Woods constructs a Chinese box of ink Rorscharch experiments made in the sixties, a drawing of Beckett from 1989, four images of the man found in the street and a quartet of mirror effected visual tricks and cut-up voices.
