Oporto apresenta #15

"Fog Pumas" by Gunvor Nelson
in collaboration with Dorothy Wiley

16 mm, colour, stereo sound, 25', 1967

Gunvor Nelson is one of those acclaimed avantgarde-film-makers who, in the sixties, settled in the Bay Area. Since then she has been doing highly personal pieces revealing a strong poetic and feminine awareness. Her camera and montage talent releases the unseen musical quality trapped in things.
In "Fog Pumas" beauty arouses unexpectedly from a surreal context. In Gunvor's words the film is "a surreal fantasy populated by an imaginative assortment of human beings, creatures, places and events.

"an entropic requiem"
