Fog Line, by Larry Gottheim

Larry Gottheim's 1970 short film Fog Line is just beautiful to watch. 11 minutes of fog imperceptibly but inexorably dissipating in a rural landscape.

It reminds me a bit of Tacita Dean's Banewl, a 63-minute fixed shot of a Cornish cow pasture during a 1999 solar eclipse--only without all the action.

In 2005, the NY Film Festival hada mini-retrospective screening of Gottheim's work, including Fog Line.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
