STAN BRAKHAGE: A CELEBRATION
An Illustrated Talk by Suranjan Ganguly
Director, Brakhage Center.

The Dante Quartet (1987)


Suranjan Ganguly will present an illustrated talk on the work of Stan Brakhage (1933-2003), widely regarded as one of the most innovative filmmakers in the history of experimental cinema who changed the way we see and think about film. Brakhage made nearly 400 films in his 52-year-long career which include psychodramas, autobiographical films, Freudian trance films, birth films, abstract films, and hand-painted films. His works range in duration from 9 seconds to over 4 hours. Ganguly will provide an overview, discussing some of the key themes and issues in his work.


Dog Star Man, Part 2 (1961-1964)



Suranjan Ganguly is director of the Brakhage Center and professor of Film Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA, where  Brakhage was his close friend, colleague, and mentor for many years.  His edited book, Stan Brakhage Interviews, was published by the University of Mississippi Press in 2016.  Ganguly has been actively engaged in presenting Brakhage’s work internationally and in the last few years has organized screenings in Paris, Lisbon, London,  Rome, Mexico City, and Lima.
Last month, he curated Stan Brakhage: Cannot Not Exist at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
