(Daina Krumins, 1972, 4 min)

Historic Film, Short Film

A psychedelic sci-fi performance film featuring otherworldly imagery and unconventional special effects, with an early original drone soundtrack by composer Rhys Chatham.
“Although I was influenced by the ‘psychedelic’ art that was around at that time, I have never taken LSD or, in fact, any serious drug.  My mind is unique enough and if I had taken LSD I would probably still be in a loony bin now.” -Daina Krumins
