Wallace Berman only made one film in his lifetime, ALEPH.
While preserving this film, another assortment of reels was
uncovered containing many more films with footage by and of
Berman. These various 8mm pieces have now been collected
together and blown-up to 16mm. This new compilation features
unseen scenes of Berman in his milieu with friends and family,
including footage of a George Herms exhibition, a motorcycle
ride (perhaps shot by Dean Stockwell) and 25 more minutes of
footage related to ALEPH.
Preserved with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the
Visual Arts. 8mm-to-16mm blow-up by BB Optics.
