Brakhage's films of animals show a profound respect for the autonomy and otherness of each creature. This film consists of four animal "portraits", but the head and face of a chick, or a raccoon, never become cute, in part because the dynamic style of Brakhage's work -his handheld camera, and use of shifting light and focus, and irregular rhythms- prevents anithing from attaining the staticism of an object (there's also snake and a guinea pig). here he superimposes the image of an animal on itself, which becomes a way of magnifying its mysterioud presence, and removing that presence from any narrative that depends on the passage of time.
