I'm sorry but I don't agree at all.
A video of a Brakhage film is not a video.
It is a video reproduction to be sure, but the work is a film.
Show someone a video of Mothlight and they will recognize the work,
"Mothlight" as a Brakhage "film," simply.
I would have thought this was intuitive.
What may be less intuitive, for younger generations especially, is
the reverse. A projected image is probably for many people a "film"
whether the beam is from a video projector or a film projector, and
whether the source material was electronic or silver-halide based.
