ICARUS AND COMPANY
Fall


Country: USA
Year: 1971
Duration: 16'
Direction: Tom Dewitt

Sinopsis

From the other side of the world –and from cinema- the American artist Tom Dewitt presents us a figure of Icarus based on abstraction. In his first work, he already told us about jumping and here, he continues along the same lines of flight with his meticulous lens – today he is obsessed with microscopes and telescopes-. Using changes in colour, superimpositions and multi-perspectives, his tale mixes men falling with the silhouettes of eagles and fleeing clouds, in a tale of Icarus which somehow transmits the immortality of the legend: the man falling through the air in classical Greece is the same as the man free falling centuries later in the Twin Towers.
