Beyond the Speed of Life : 1970 is a visual accompaniment to Port Sulphur's 'the Speed of Life' long-player.


Shot entirely with 1960s vintage 16mm cameras and lenses it is an exploration of early music video aesthetics, B-Movies, amateur filmmaking and the Underground – Warhol, Brakhage, Deren, Mekas and Anger.


Reflecting the recording of the Speed of Life album, the filmmaking process deployed a similar 'automatic' writing approach of unlearning technique, a refusal of pre-determined composition and ensuring that 'first ideas' take priority regardless of secondary thought merit.
