Watch “Mothlight by Stan Brakhage 1963” on YouTube

We watched Stan Brakhage’s 16mm film MothLight in class at uni a few weeks ago. This YouTube video is nothing like watching a 16mm film projection but it gives you an idea of the film. I think it’s beautiful. Brakhage stuck moth wings, leaves, flowers and other stuff to the film and then had a print made. The images flow and feel mesmerising.
