Best known for his collaborations with rock iconoclast Frank Zappa in the 1970s (Dub Room Special, Baby Snakes, The Amazing Mr. Bickford), underground animator Bruce Bickford has influenced generations of artists with his startlingly original vision.
Available to the public for the first time since its completion more than two decades ago, Prometheus’ Garden (28 minutes, 1988) was the first film over which Bickford maintained complete creative control following his collaborations with Zappa. The DVD features a commentary track by Bickford, an alternate score by Laird Dixon, and the half hour documentary featurette, Luck of a Foghorn, directed by Brett Ingram.
What the critics are saying:
