Life on a Thread

"Life on a Thread" was the title of a film I made with Dr. Peter Witt, back in the early seventies.

Dr. Witt was a pharmacologist at D. Dix Hospital in Raleigh, NC, and I was asked to contact him about filming spiders using LSD and other drugs. The idea was to show the crazy patterns that these spiders created under the influence.

So, off I flew to North Carolina with a special arriflex camera that permitted time lapse photography.

His daughter recently put the resulting film made for Dr. Peter Witt on the web.
