Homage to Magritte. 1975. USA. Directed by Anita Thacher. 10 min.
Thacher's film is an accretion of images composed on an optical printer before the use of digital tools. Predating popular awareness of René Magritte’s work, Homage to Magritte repurposes his imagery to evoke women’s interior monologues. Preserved with support from NYWIFT’s Women’s Film Preservation Fund.
