This is "Persian Series #2", and the title already says that it is an early installment of a long-running series of short films that American filmmaker Stan Brakhage made at the end of the last century. It was already in the later years of his career, but these films here give us a good general overview of his approach to filmmaking. The style is the epitome of his work really and I personally have problem making a connection with this entire lack of story and characters. I also have seen many superior experimental films. All in all, this one here was an okay watch visually, but only because it is over so quickly. I do not recommend checking it out.
