The title suggests strange doing in a worm's kingdom, and indeed, Brakhage crates -or, more accurately, appears to observe- a magical world of ligth and nature. His handheld camera, which expressionistically asserted itself in his films of the late 1950s and early 1960s, and more gently evoked his own body´s rhythms in the 1970s, seems still more modest, and almost entirely observational, here. Instead of standing with the filmmaker experiencing the particular eccentricities of his and our own eyesights, we are immersed in a "garden" in which light and object are one: there is an equivalence between the spectral cat, the worm seen in close-up, and fuzzy surfaces of shimmering light that cannot be identified.
