Stan Brakhage's convulsive personal and silent documentary about a Pittsburgh morgue, made in 1971, is one of the most direct confrontations with death ever recorded on film. Included on the same program—along with a lecture by Chuck Kleinhans, professor of film at Northwestern University—are three other shorts that are not conventionally regarded as horror films, but that will be considered in relation to that genre: Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid's ground-breaking experimental film Meshes of the Afternoon (1943); Chris Marker's innovative science fiction film La jetee (1964), which tells its story almost exclusively in stills; and Celia Condi's 1982 combination of soap-opera characters and dark humor, Beneath the Skin.
