A haunting bass clarinet accompanies the sparse movements of Jorge Holguin and Lee Anne Smith in this poetic work completed posthumously for Michael McGarry. Through stylized contrasts in movement, costume, and interior and exterior settings, the film explores a tension between freedom and restraint, movement and immobility, suggesting ultimately, the struggle between life and death. It was inspired by a short play by Louis Arrabal called The Labyrinth.

Also available as a 16mm print with advanced notice.
