Hurry, Hurry! 1957 HD

"L'un de mes films préférés est HURRY HURRY, une étude au microscope sur les spermatozoïdes cherchant un oeuf à féconder. Tous les spermes meurent. Il s'agit d'une grande tragédie et tandis que je travaillais sur ce film, je me voyais comme un alchimiste essayant de trouver l'or mais n'atteignant que le plomb." —Marie Menken

“In this strange little film, Marie Menken photographs billowy flames superimposed over microscopic medical footage of writhing spermatozoa. Her humorous juxtaposition depicts a fiery death-dance of wily males seeking each other in wanton abandon. Ultimately the film is a poignant reminder of the brevity of life.” —Bruce Posner

“Filmmaking was a natural evolution while I was engaged in painting, particularly since I was primarily concerned in capturing light, its effect on textured surfaces, its glowing luminescence in the dark, the enhancement of juxtaposed color, persistence of vision and eye fatigue.” —Marie Menken
