The film clips of Guy Bourdin

The Films of Guy Bourdin (1960s-1980s)

While we wait for the Guy Bourdin documentary “When the Sky Fell Down” directed by his assistant Sean Brandt to finally surface, a taster can be found at ubu.com. They’ve published a collection of his super 8 clips. Rather than seeming like out takes out from a fashion shoot or behind the runway scenes, the feel is more akin to an early underground film; a clash of Kenneth Anger and Godard’s technicolour Pierrot le fou perhaps. A quality enhanced by being set to the glitch pop of Ensemble.
