United Kingdom, 1976

Film
Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Three shorts: “Dear phone” (1976); “Water wrackets” (1978); “A walk through H” (1978). These films are an entertaining and intriguing mix of method and madness, pedantry and poetry, landscape beauty and bureaucratic fog. Questioning film forms and documentary traditions, Greenaway’s work is always intellectually sharp and visually superb.
