Hart of London
Dir. Jack Chambers (1970).
A landmark in Canadian avant-garde film, Jack Chambers magnum opus works and reworks the 1954 trapping and killing of a deer in downtown London, Ontario, until it comes to seem a grand metaphor for the destructive cost of civilization. The methodology recalls Brakhage, Bruce Conner, and Vertovthe film has a powerful brooding quality all its own.
