Bruce Conner's "Mea Culpa" film for Eno and Byrne

At Saturday's "This Must Be The Place" post-punk film festival in San Francisco, I was bowled over by Beat filmmaker/photographer/assemblage artist Bruce Conner's 1981 short film for the song "Mea Culpa" from Brian Eno and David Byrne's "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts." Among dozens of other films through his career, Conner's also created "America is Waiting" for the Eno/Byrne song from that same album and "Mongoloid" for Devo in 1978.
