In making this film, I wanted to investigate a formal device that I had started using in GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM: presenting dreams as text through the form of scratched words which have to be read rather than recreating the "look" of the dream through images. In the previous film, I used fourteen dreams. In BUT NO ONE, I concentrated on a single dream, and one that disturbed me because of its seeming amorality and passivity. The text is presented with the same "scratched word" technique used in the previous film, but is handled in a more playful, surprising manner. The blunt, vernacular images, which were shot on the streets of the Lower East Side, are set in contrast to the strange images conjured by the text. - Su Friedrich
