This film of two of Brakhage´s grandchildren is not at all a paean to the imaginative freedom of chilhood he has celebrated in his writings, but is instead rather terrifying: the kids seem enmeshed in a grid of lights and are often twisted and distorted through an anamorphic lens (which Brakhage makes much use of in "Dog Star Man"), as the boy whips a rope back and forth while the girl kneels in front of him. The soundtrack, by Architect´s Office, adds another level of grotesquery.

Letterboxd web:
Refracted images, not unlike those in a funhouse mirror, display two children playing in a backyard, a boy and a girl. There's a dog, a swing, a picket fence, a Big Wheels trike. The grass is green and lush. A soundtrack mixes a chorus, swelling strings, and a child vocalizing. The effect is to idealize the images.
