Performers, Cast and Crew:
An experimental filmmaker who crafts dense, multi-layered visual poems, Henry Hills makes movies that eschew traditional narrative and instead focus on rhythm and mood. This engaging collection offers 11 of the director's shorts created between 1977-2008, including "Porter Springs 3," "Failed States," and "Little Lieutenant."
Moving into New York in 1978, filmmaker Henry Hills formed a strong alliance with the Downtown improvisers and the ?Language? poets, guiding his film work toward a rhythmic, multi-layered world filled with unpredictable changes and a striking improvisational edge. The very best of his short, intense films are presented here ? from the downtown all-star MONEY to structural dance films like THE LITTLE LIEUTENANT and BALI MECHANIQUE. These films are brilliantly visual, crammed with image and double meaning. Also included is his 1990 music video for the band Naked City's song, ?Gotham.?
