Film Info


Directed by Philip Hoffman, vulture sets its sights on farm animals and their surrounding flora. Static shots and slow-moving zooms follow the grazing animals in their minute interspecies exchanges. The film was shot and processed in diverse ways, including flower/plant processing. In some cases, a salt bath was used for fixing the film, which was left soaking in the dark for three days. Opens with a performance by Fulla Abdul-Jabbar.
