sfaÍra 1985–1895

(Ivan Ladislav Galeta, 1971/1984, 9 min)

Historic Film

sfaÍra (1985-1895) is dedicated to Pythagoras and Plato and is an homage to two of Galeta’s favorite spheroids: the Earth and the Sun. The protagonist, as we are informed by the title sequence, is a sculpture named Earthbound Sun and the film’s photography, a stunning example of optical printing techniques, shows his affection for both. With sfaÍra,  Galeta  delivers a pictorial and literary Maximalism, in a way that only cinema can do but had not been done before. -Vassily Bourikas
