Valse Triste
US 1979

„Valse Triste is frankly and gracefully auto biographical of Conner’s Kansas boyhood, here the period of the 1940’s of his source materials parallels his own life experiences. A line of dark, wet cars files across a flooded road; a man and a boy ceremoniously burn leaves; a businessman at his desk turns to look over his shoulder to the photo of a locomotive behind him: a medium shot of an engineer in the cab of his locomotive: a shard of rock shears from a quarry wall and plunges into the water …”

Bruce Conner (US), 16mm, 5 min, 1979
