by Lewis Klahr
16mm film, color, sound (Optical), 14 ', 2003
Lewis Klahr is the long waited follower of and Joseph Cornell´s surrealist legacy. His films are unique cinematic-collages, uncanny streams of scenarios where subjects and things try (and fail) to fall into an order.
Daylight Moon is an elliptical narrative, a detective story told in images and shadows from old Americana comics and ads. The film reveals a subtle unconscious quest for the unnamed pleasure or crime.
