A film essay…

“The film essay enables the filmmaker to make the ‘invisible’ world of thoughts and ideas visible in the screen. Unlike the documentary film that presents facts and information, the essay film produces complex thought – reflections that are not necessarily bound to reality, but can also be contradictory, irrational, and fantastic.”

– Hans Richter in Nora Alter, “Memory Essays”
