Magic Box, The: The Films of Shirley Clarke. 1927-1986: Project Shirley Volume 4 (DVD)
With Project Shirley: The Magic Box, we were able to bring together eight hours of absolute fabulousness. The collection includes an Oscar®-winning documentary (Robert Frost), a lost children s film (Christopher and Me), D.A. Pennebaker and Clarke s incredible Brussels Loops, the complete catalog of her short films (dance, experimental, industrial and narrative), and dozens of unknown and/or unfinished projects. Because these short masterpieces along with Clarke s astonishing feature films were previously unavailable, her film career has not received the critical and public acclaim it deserves. Now, as audiences thrill to the discoveries in Project Shirley: The Magic Box, they can experience the full range and sweep of this filmmaker s dazzling creativity.
