water sequences from jerome hill's film la cartomancienne / fortune teller, 1932.
this film contains 2 sublime abstract water sequences.
r. bruce eder explains that the film uses ideas about the transformation of the self that c.g. jung found in alchemical texts. although i find the rest of the film not exactly to my taste, the 2 abstract sequences certainly seem to be fine examples of the possibilities of alchemy and avant-garde film.
the first sequence looks like a stan brakhage hand-painted film, the second has a figure swimming under water, abstracted by the sun.
this film is on the disc the mechanized eye from the unseen cinema series curated by bruce posner.
