#5: Brakhage was an experimental film-maker who made “visual music.” His films don’t have narratives, and can’t be followed logically. He invites us to see without thinking, to look without our usual habits of naming, categorizing, or interpreting. Many people find it uncomfortable to watch something that can’t be understood.
