Black and Silver

This radical reworking of an Oscar Wilde tale (The Birthday of the Infanta) based on Velasquez' painting 'Las Meninas', marked the Rabans' first venture into 'experimental narrative' territory. A film of often glacial beauty and formal dexterity, it is also, in its continually looping themes of duplicity, self-deception and loss, a subtle and intuitive essay on the nature of film itself. One of the more successful films from the avant-garde, and for its imagery alone well worth seeing.
