The Garden of Earthly Delights is a camera-less film by visionary avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage made by attaching leaves and grasses to a 35mm filmstrip. The director pays homage to the organic nature of photochemical cinema as an art that shares with plants the vital necessity of light. The film was offered by Brakhage as a diptych with his earlier Moonlight (1963), similarly made wings and translucent parts of moths and other insects. In a mere two-minute length unfolds an ecstatic poem embracing the green and golden of the sun-blessed seasons and the joy of light passing through the filmstrip onto the screen. (Haden Guest)
