Film maker Stan Brakhage has Just finished shooting footage in Pittsburgh for a film dealing with hospitals. We have had excellent cooperation and assistance from the hospitals and patients involved. The film thus far includes open heart surgery, wards, emergency room situations and a premature nursery. Alas, no birth, but we understand that he could have the opportunity to film a hospital birth within the next month, and wonder if you could make this possible.
The parents of the expected child are: George and Loise Foot
2008 Baseline Boulder, Colo.
Their doctor: Dr. Max Bartlett
