Porch Glider, 1970, 25 min

James Herbert

Documentary, Experimental, Historic Film, Short Film

Porch Glider is James Herbert's rarely seen masterpiece, one of over a dozen films by Herbert screened at AAFF from the late 1960s to the mid 1970s. The film is a meditative and frankly sensuous observational portrait of a coterie of friends and acquaintances who while away afternoons and nights in the garden, on the porch, and among the many rooms of an old Southern house.
