Marie Menken, Glimpse of the Garden
United States 1957

16mm film transferred to digital file, colour, sound, 5 min

Glimpse of the Garden is an experimental film that transports its audiences to a garden, with the chirping of birds forming its soundtrack. It gives a glimpse of the vastness of the landscape which includes a lake, while also showing pure visuals of flowers and plants filmed through a powerful magnifying glass. At most times, the pace is fast, with shots appearing to be taken randomly or from a flying insect’s perspective. In 1958, the film won an award at the Exposition Universelle et Internationale at Brussels. In 2007, the film was nominated for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in Washington.

This film screening is part of the Film Programme: Resonating Structures, which features six of Siah Armajani’s computer-generated short films from the 1970s.
