MOCA presents three of Steers’ early films that play in a continuous loop in our Price Auditorium including PHANTOM CANYON (2006), TOTEM (1999) and WATUNNA (1990). Click on the title of the film below to see an excerpt from the film. 

PHANTOM CANYON

A curious woman meets an alluring man with bat wings in this personal recollection of a pivotal journey. This 10 minute animated film was created from over 4000 hand-made collages incorporating the figures from Eadweard Muybridge’s Human and Animal Locomotion, first published in 1887.

TOTEM

A stream of consciousness look at our evolving relationship to the animal world.

WATUNNA

Creation cycle mythology from the Yekuana Indians of the Orinoco region of Venezuela. A transparent look at the poetic process by which human beings construct meaning from their experience. Narrated by Stan Brakhage. Music and sound by Bruce Odland.
