The Art of Melancholy A Selection of Films by Leslie Thornton

Abstract

“If you actually processed, consciously, all the things that are around you all the time, you’d be nuts,” said renowned experimental filmmaker Leslie Thornton. This quotation, perhaps, explains why her films sometimes induce a feeling of temporary insanity. They force the audience to process, consciously, many of the unnoticed things that surround us all the time.
