Connecticut Papoose

Ernest Gusella

1981, 60:00 minutes, colour, English

TAPECODE 063.03

Connecticut Papoose, is conceived as a "surrealist" tract, with references to Lautremont, Tristan Tzara, Andre Breton, and to surrealist images of sleeping and dreaming. Throughtout the tape, unrelated images and ideas are juxtaposed - as they might be in a surrealist painting by Magritte. The "voice over" operates as a kind of "stream-of-consciousness" guide through the underworld labyrinth of the human mind (with all its vicissitudes.)
