Jon Behrens Characteristics


"Seattle filmmaker Jon Behrens has been developing his unique style of cinema since 1979. Since then he has produced more than 35 films and counting. Critics have described his films as 'atmospheric, seductively alienating and sometimes disturbing.' His films have been screened at film festivals and alternative venues throughout the world.

Reminiscent of the underground films of the 1960's, Mr. Behrens' films are filled with timelapse cinematography, multiple exposures and film solarization. Relying only minimally on actors or story lines, making the point that these are unnecessary elements, Behrens communicates his themes primarily through using film as a visual medium.
