Many thanks to the list - I have had some very helpful and interesting suggestions, both on and off list, in terms of filmmakers who reference alchemical ideas, or who might be said to work in a consciously alchemical way with film - Christian Farrell / Silt, Sociedade Abissologica, Daniel Higgs 'Alchemist', Werner Nekes, Jim Davis, Ken Paul Rosenthal.
I want to say also that May at the Academy has been very helpful in terms of organising a way of viewing James Whitney's Dwija. I am aware of William Moritz's writing on Dwija (thanks to CVM), also the discussion of Dwija in William Wees. If anyone knows of any other sources or commentaries I should know about in relation to this (or indeed his other 'elemental' film - Wu Ming) , please do let me know. Thanks again to everyone for such helpfulness. Richard Richard Ashrowan rich...@ashrowan.com Web: www.ashrowan.com Blog: http://richardashrowan.tumblr.com Alchemy: www.alchemyfilmfestival.org.uk
