    Beschreibung "As the lyric poem is the direct manifestation through words of feelings and thoughts, with the expressive possibilities of plot, motion, music, dialogue, and image all muted in themselves, and only serving this pure expression; this is precisely the film lyric's function, through its own available idiom. It may have story elements, as in Weinberg's Autumn Fire; or none at all, as in Brakhage's The Dead. It may consist entirely of pictorial images, as Deren's At Land. Or it may utilize music: borrowed, as in Harrington's On the Edge (from Ives); or specially composed, as in Eisenstein's Romance Sentimentale (by Alexandrov). It may include dialogue, as in Weiss's The Mirage; or narration, as in Les Mistons; which may be a poem itself, as in Looney Tom, the Happy Lover, that delight of James Broughton to which Lorca's phrase "erotic allelujah" so happily applies. The devices used do not in themselves make the film a lyric. The effect they create does. The above film-poems differ in the techniques they employ, but all have in common the goal of direct communication of sensibilities and visions." (Information des Anbieters; aus der Einleitung)
