Rabbit’s Moon (1979)

Directed by Kenneth Anger

Cinematography by Kenneth Anger and Oleg Tourjansky

Starring André Soubeyran, Claude Revenant, and Nadine Valence

Rabbit’s Moon, with its use of fast-motion film speed, mime, dance, and French-inspired theatrical sets and costumes, feels almost like a 1930’s music video. The monochromatic blue lighting made the film appear to be in color-tinted black and white, and the overall aesthetic was derived from silent films while also appearing similar to the work of pop-artists Pierre et Gilles (who influenced whom is a mystery to me).
