Classic meditative collage film created entirely without the use of a camera by pasting montane zone vegetation such as petals, grasses and leaves onto strips of clear film leader. As the title suggests, it is a homage to (but also an argument with) Hieronymous Bosch.
Luma nocturna uses overlapping dissolves of hand-drawn images to capture the luminescent magic of light strewn across the black city at night, from the majestic convergences of great boulevards to ephemeral, amorphous supple reflections.
This legendary film constitutes the Letterist manifesto of film. One of the most radical innovators of the art of cinema (physically attacking the film material), the writer Isou inspired the works of Guy Debord, Stan Brakhage and many others.
