Blank color frequencies space out and optically feed into black and white images of one lovemaking act which is seen simultaneously from both sides of its space and both ends of its time.

"Thanks for the strip ... it IS that/cut to the bone of some matter that does really concern me: how a man and a woman meet nakedly head-on among the colors ... lovely: I can hardly wait to see the entirety of that vision ...." - Stan Brakhage

"PIECE MANDALA/END WAR reminds me very much of the back light (GoKo) which illuminates the spirit of Buddha - yet no image of Buddha appears; rather, a couple of naked bodies. I have never imagined that GoKo could really happen and illuminate as in this film." - Takahiko Iimura, Film Art
