Preludes: Selected Works of Peter Mettler

1982 NR

Known best for his collaborations with Atom Egoyan -- serving as cinematographer on films such as Next of Kin -- Peter Mettler is an important filmmaker in his own right, as witnessed by the three works collected here. Scissere, Mettler's first feature, explores the rift between reason and sensation; Eastern Avenue provides a lyrical travelogue of a three-month journey; and Balifilm reflects Mettler's artistic exploration of the island of Bali.
