Marie Menken

still from Marie Menken's Go Go Go
Still from Koyaanisqatsi

Marie Menken's experimental film Go Go Go (1962-64) used time-lapse photography to highlight the speed and frenzy of the city of New York. A hypnotic sequence filmed from above (top) reminded me of a similar part of Koyaanisqatsi (1982) by Godfrey Reggio (bottom).
