The Lacey Family
THE LACEY RITUALS
1973, 63 min, 16mm-to-35mm
From young children to fully-grown adults, everyone in the Lacey family took turns operating the camera and presenting a daily ritual in this highly unusual, consistently entertaining, experimental home movie. Events and rituals unfold in real time, creating tension, drama, anarchy and humor. Mishaps, mistakes, and re-takes are all included.
1970-72, 33 min, 16mm-to-35mm
Named after the Bela Lugosi horror film, WHITE ZOMBIE (1932) – according to Keen, ‘probably the most beautiful film ever made’ – and the romantic comedy, RED DUST (1932), WHITE DUST follows friends and family of Keen while they explore the archetypal characters of Hollywood and myth. These unresolved episodes, constructed from discrete 100-foot film lengths and cut with dramatic library music, look back to American film serials.
