"Scenes from Under Childhood Section #1" is, as the title already states, the first from several films from this series. It runs for slightly under 25 minutes and was written and directed by American (short) filmmaker Stan Brakhage. The film is from 1967, so it will have its 50th anniversary next year and it is one of Brakhage's more known works. He was still fairly young when he made this one. The quantity of good scenes in here is just too little, even for a film that stays easily under 30 minutes. I do not understand at all the need for further films from this series.
