The Maltese Cross Movement

DEWDNEY, Keewatin

Regular price $100.00 Sale

Keewatin Dewdney, son of Canadian artist and author Selwyn Dewdney, created the experimental film, The Maltese Cross Movement, in 1967. The film reflects Dewdney's conviction that the projector, not the camera, is the filmmaker's true medium. The form and content of the film are shown to derive directly from the mechanical operation of the projector - specifically the maltese cross movement’s animation of the disk and the cross illustrates the projector’s essential parts and movements. This scrapbook, based on the film, uses collage techniques to link pictures with hieroglyphics.
