W ALKING INTO Thursday night's
16mm Festival at the Michigan
Theate, the first thing I noticed was a
stuffed man, headless, sitting in the
A few years ago, such an event would
not have seemed particularly out of
place at the annual film festival. But as
sure as the Michigan Theatre is dif-
ferent than Lorch Auditorium, so are
the movies slightly more sedate.
Here's a brief glimpse at Thursday's
Wind Chimes (Robert Holman) was a
intensely structured, Bergmanesque
look at the psychosis of a young woman.
A clock with a porcelain face and
bulging eyes, a bleeding bouquet of
flowers, and wind chimes were soberly
intercut with straining music to very ef-
fectively overwhelm the viewer.
A film that might have been more ap-
propriate at the 8mm Festival, but was
still a relief from the tightly construc-
ted films of the evening, was Dutch
Treat (Paul Richmond). Fanatically
compressed snippets from TV shows
were scratched with images of sharks
and strange rays emanating from
people's eyes. It was bizarre, but
without much of a point.
The hit of the evening was Deep Trout
(Abbott Meader/Walter Easton). This
was a sparkling, personal odyssey
through the streams of Maine. Wildly
inventive, our hero travelled through
summer and winter, fishing, and living
off the land. The antagonist on this
journey was a flying trout that would
periodically impale itself through the
man's head. The film was a happy
combination of good music, delightful
humor, and William Blake quotations.
Landing Lights (Mark D. Ryan) was
an interesting look at-airplanes landing.
Starting with a blue sky and clouds,
Ryan shot some footage of airplanes in
extremely slow motion, thus reducing
