Boston Fire

(Peter Hutton, 1979, 8 min)

Boston Fire finds grandeur in smoke rising eloquently from a city blaze... The beautiful texture of the smoke coupled with the isolation from the source of the fire erases the destructive impact of the event. The camera, lost in the immense dark clouds, produces images for meditation removed from the causes or consequences of the scene. The tiny firemen, seen as distant silhouettes, gaze in awe, helpless before nature’s power.” -Leger Grindon, Millennium Film Journal
