The Star Curtain Tantra

(Peter Mays, 1969, 14 min)

Historic Film, Short Film

“A trance film originally released in 1966 as The Star Curtain, about the settling and relaxation of the senses after a climax.  ‘Sentences’ of cosmic imagery were added in 1969 to form the vision glimpsed in the trance.  Dialectic opposition of picture and sound.” -Peter Mays
