Mr Bradly Mr Martin Hear Us Through The Hole In Thin Air

Vimeo swarms with Burroughs-related films, many of which might not have been made had it not been for the profusion of recordings of the author reading his work. This short from 2010 is one of the better examples, a combination of live-action film and animation by Greig Johnson that crams a considerable amount of invention into five minutes. The text is from the mulch of cut-ups that formed Nova Express, the recording being one of the tracks on Burroughs’s first album of readings, Call Me Burroughs (1965). Given the film’s style and short running time it makes a good double-bill with Philip Hunt’s Ah Pook Is Here (1994).
