Windowframe by Roger Hewins closed the program. This film, from 1976, felt very 70s to me. That's a compliment! Using the 4 quadrants of a window frame as a canvas, Hewins reprints sequences and parts of sequences of a man and a woman engaging in some mundane activity with shells and other objects. The slowing down and the repetition and the disjunction when parts of the figures are "decapitated" by other images in the above quadrant make it completely engaging. The pace is not dizzying, as in other films that employ an optically printed collage, so the viewer is clearly focused on the simple arc of movements between these two people. The soundtrack is "Missa Pange Lingua'" by Josquin des Pres, but not a complete polished performance. Hewins includes mistakes and commentary by the singers, which disrupts the flow of the music (much like he disrupts the flow of the images through optical printing), and gives it a feeling that's casual, almost folksy.
