Even if it's not in the habits of Inconstant Sol to write about moving images, we're going to make an exception for a special short film. Made in 1967 by director Henry English, "You see what I'm trying to say" could be described as a portrait of Marion Brown in New York, both parts of the sentence being of importance.
Scarcely shown or circulated, it has kindly been transfered to digital media by Henry and we feel that it's something the readers of Inconstant Sol will want to see. Of note : the film contains shots of a studio session (set-up for the movie) involving Marion Brown, Dave Burrell, Sirone, and Bobby Kapp.
Shortly after the making of the film, Marion Brown - fed up with his poor financial situation - would take off for Europe.
Henry has written a very thorough write-up about the making of the film, that can be accessed at this address.
The movie can be seen online, following this link :
Many thanks again to Henry for his work in bringing the movie back to light.
