The Early Films of Peter Greenaway 1

Before his international arthouse hit "The Draughtsman's Contract", Peter Greenaway had made a series of highly inventive and witty short films. Their content varies widely: the potted history of 37 people who have fallen to their deaths from windows ("Windows"), a sequence of 92 maps to guide a dead ornithologist on his way into the afterlife ("A Walk Through H"), but all the films are immensely playful and take pleasure in outlandish detail, fake erudition and corkscrew narratives. Composer Michael Nyman started his career with Peter Greenaway and contributed a thrilling score to "A Walk Through H". Also includes "H is for House", "Intervals", "Dear Phone" and "Water Wrackets". All films were made between 1969 -1978.
