Seemingly poles apart, Stan Brakhage (1933–2003) and Georges Méliès (1861–1938) were two independent spirits, explorers of multiplicity, dissection, starry realms, panoramas of the interior, metamorphosis and decay. In vastly different ways, they composed for a radiant screen, abandoning the usual notions of accepted perspectival space. Exploring the mythic and the everyday, both filmmakers superimposed life and death, plumbing the depths of the subconscious, evoking terrors and natural splendors that summon childhood perceptions.
