Looking For Mushrooms

Bruce Conner... Looking For Mushrooms (1996, 14 minutes). "...Filmed in 1962 in Mexico where he spent about a year, Conner cut Looking for Mushrooms down to 100 feet in 1965 in order to fit it into an endless-loop cartridge for continuous projection. In 1967 he added a soundtrack by The Beatles (“Tomorrow Never Knows”). Thirty years later, he revisited Looking for Mushrooms, extending it to 15 minutes by repeating each frame five times and adding a new soundtrack – 'Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band' (1968) by Terry Riley."
