Films by a pioneer American animator, the late Robert Breer.

What one sees in such a Breer film is not what is actually physically on the film-strip but the fleeting product of the film’s performance on the retina. The velocity of Breer’s ‘sensory manipulations’ generally defies any kind of assessment, or thinking through while watching them. These films are designed as a cavalcade of visual impressions. Thinking can only come after the event. This is a critical point that eternally re-surfaces when describing Breer’s films.” Dirk De Bruyn
