DRIPPING WATER

by Michael SNOW & Joyce WIELAND new filmmaker
1969 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 10' 22

"You see nothing but a white, crystal white plate, and water dripping into the plate, from the ceiling, from high, and you hear the sound of the water dripping. The film is ten minutes long. I can imagine only St. Francis looking at a water plate and water dripping so lovingly, so respectfully, so serenely. The usual reaction is: 'Oh, what is it anyhow? Just a plate of water dripping.' But that is a snob remark. That remark has no love for the world, for anything. Snow and Wieland's film uplifts the object, and leaves the viewer with a finer attitude toward the world around him; it can open his eyes to the phenomenal world. And how can you love people if you don't love water, stone , glass?" - Jonas Mekas, New York Times, 1969
