Ostensibly it's a card game played on the body of a nude woman. This bizarre concept could only come from a very young, inexperienced would-be filmmaker. I shot it in one night in the basement apartment of the small Victorian house rented by Robert Duncan and Jess (both now very famous). Stan Brakhage lived in the basement and "stared" in the movie. Yvonne Faire was the woman. At that time Stan and I were still in our psychodrama period a la Maya Deren. But Christopher MacLaine liked the film and produced the sound track (his voice and various 'instruments' which he manipulated).
The film was restored by Anthology Film Archives in 2005.
