Canadian avant-garde filmmaker Jack Chambers concluded his brief filmmaking career, not including two unfinished works, with The Hart Of London in 1970 (the titular city is actually not the British one, but that of Ontario, Canada, where Chambers was born). A sprawling and forward-thinking creation of what the director calls “perceptual realism”, the feature-length movie combines various types of footage from different sources to weave a fascinating tapestry of evocative image juxtapositions that explore—among many other things—dichotomies of nature & society and life & death. Stan Brakhage considered it to be one of the few truly great films of all time.
