White Heart, directed by Daniel Barnett. (1975, 16mm)

A classic experimental film of the ’70s that is rarely screened. Here is kino21’s official description of the film:

Barnett’s magnum opus turns cinema inside out. This is a philosopher’s film that puts the materials on display, and stretches the meaning across fragments of Wittgensteinian investigations of certainty and doubt. Poet Robert Kocik observed that the “white” of the title is not the blanched, fearful heart of doubt, but the full-spectrum white of the projection beam, the illumination that cannot lie (because it cannot tell the truth).
