An alchemist incantation and rural happening filmed on Super 8 film in an Hungarian sand quarry. Kantor appears on a tractor and on horseback with gold bust in his own image and joins the ebullient crowd. The guests pop champagne, blood turns to molten gold, and then sets on fire in an ode to the neoist movement.

Further information

Blood and Gold explores one of my well known Neoist hymns of the same title, the lyrics originally written by Hungarian poet Endre Ady (1877-1919), whose poetry I have worshiped since my childhood. The video clip is a shorter edit from Protokol (1982, 35 min).” - Istvan Kantor
