Great documentary on filmmakers and the "experimental films" that they produced. Some very cool visual effects choreographed to an African tribal drum session.

There are a few images that contain very brief frontal nudity. So you might want to put the kids to bed first.

Though this film has its limitations, it is a must-see for anyone interested in experimental films. There are some great interviews with Robert Breer, Hans Richter and Jonas Mekas. I only wish that more filmmakers were included especially Tony Conrad.
