Zorn's Lemma

United States | 1970 | Hollis Frampton

Zorn's Lemma

This poetic experimental film, one of the seminal masterworks of structural cinema, is the most famous movie by the late Hollis Frampton, who attended Western Reserve University for three-and-a-half years during the 1950s but never graduated. Named for a mathematical axiom relating to set theory, Zorn’s Lemma is a three-part film that moves beyond the alphabet and words to create a highly structured lexicon of patterned images. Preceded at showtime by Frampton’s Prince Ruperts Drops (USA, 1969).

Total 67 min. Both 16mm. This program supported by the Charles Lang Bergengren Memorial Film Fund.
