Waking the Dead

As previously mentioned, Bruce Elder’s The Book of all the Dead has loomed large on my personal horizon for some time now, one of a handful of ambitious cinematic sequences that capture my fascination in ways that little else does.  God willing in the near future I’ll have the opportunity at MoMA to scale the great heights of a few other works of a like-nature (if not like-mind), but unfortunately as to Elder’s creation itself for the foreseeable future that great hunger is somewhat satiated through peripheral testaments like the following very engaging 1988 Millenium Film Journal interview between Jim Shedden and Elder.
