LOGOSFIELD

LogosField (20 minutes 1969-2020) is a poetic non-narrative exploration of Creation, Consciousness, Transcendence and Love. This film was originally meant to be the capstone film for Michael W. Barnard’s series of experimental  Field Films begun in the 1960s. LogosField had been expected to be completed in 1971, but – as sometimes happens – Life intervened. After making films for Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (founder of Transcendental Meditation), raising a family, establishing and running a production company in Los Angeles, traveling all over the world making films and fine art, Michael was finally able to complete this film in 2020. It couldn’t have happened any other way… The film follows members of his family as they grow and develop over that 50 year period. LogosField was shot on 16mm film and HD video in many countries around the world, and shows the influence of Barnard’s early film mentors Stan Brakhage and Bruce Connor. The film deals with the big issues of life through the use of personal footage mixed with more highly produced sequences. An evocative score and inclusion of voice-over readings of Rumi’s poetry add additional layers to the experience.
