It could well be. I don't know Monkey's Birthday well enough to say. It's only 
been screened about twice in the UK since it was made!

Maybe I've got my Larcher confused but I think the footage you (Nicky) refer to 
is actually a citation from one (both?) of the earlier films (MARE'S TALE; 
MONKEY'S BIRTHDAY).

Larcher's EETC (1986) is also a kind of travelogue. At least, it was made on 
the road, and there are shots of his bus, plus him processing film in a Morse 
tank, walking about etc. It's a great example of film-video hybridity too,

Philip Hoffman's The Road Ended At the Beach (1983) and Somewhere Between 
Jalostotitlan and Encarnacion (1984) are strong films and his Passing 
Through/Torn Formations (1988) might be appropriate. 


Also Hollis Frampton's Ordinary Matter (1972) is a kind of metaphysical 
travelogue that spans the Brooklyn Bridge and Stonehenge.

Rumored to be the ultimate in long-form ruminative experimental travelogues are 
MARE'S TALE (1969, 160 min.) and/or THE MONKEY'S BIRTHDAY (1975, 360 min.), 
both by David Larcher.

Hello you,


I am trying to pull together a list of experimental films that either fall 
directly under the category of "travelogue" or bear witness to travel and 
distance from a point of origin on the part of the filmmaker. These would not 
be so much ethnographic works which are part of a sustained cultural exchange, 
but films made as a result of the filmmaker "passing through" and acknowledging 
the looming spectre/problem/pleasure of "the tourist film". Warren Sonbert, 
perhaps John Smith's "The Hotel Diaries"? I'm sure there are others...but can 
you name them?


Thanks/Grazie/Kiitos!
