Castle 2

by Le Grice, Malcolm

Film: 16mm 1968

self funded

This film continues the theme of the military/industrial complex and its psychological impact upon the individual that I began with Castle One. Like Castle One, much use is made of newsreel montage, although with entirely different material. The film is more evidently thematic, but still relies on formal devices - building up to a fast barrage of images (the two screens further split - to give 4 separate images at once for one sequence). The images repeat themselves in different sequential relationships and certain key images emerge both in the soundtrack and the visual. The alienation of the viewer's involvement does not occur as often in this film as in Castle One, but the concern with the viewer's experience of his present location still determines the structure of certain passages in the film. ‘- Malcolm Le Grice, London Film-Makers' Co-operative catalogue, 1968) Previously part of the SHOOT SHOOT SHOOT programme, now available separately
