Description

A UCLA Animation Workshop student film by Susan Dyal. The photograph of an Arizona mesa is transformed into authentic Navajo design patterns through animation techniques, accompanied by a Navajo rain chant on the soundtrack. An excellent companion film to NOW THAT THE BUFFALO'S GONE or HOME OF THE BRAVE; a pure cameo of film art as an entity in itself. [Source: Creative Film Society Catalog, 1975]
