Hail

Saw “Hail the New Puritan” by Charles Atlas (who was in attendance and did a Q&A) last week. He also did the Leigh Bowery documentary.
Hail is a fantasy documentary about a day in the life of Michael Clark and friends, shot in 1985. I especially enjoyed the parts of the movie where variations of a scene repeated itself and also where wild cuts intersected the narrative. There is a little bit of both in the opening scene below.

    I am jealous beyond belief! I wanted to see “Hail” for years and it´s nearly impossible to get a glimpse on it here in old Germany…How cool!! Michael Clarks “Curious Oranji” ballet with the Fall made me wanna wear costumes!
    Jealous!!!
    love
