A film without commentary in which multiple images, sometimes complementary, sometimes contrasting, draw the viewer through the different stages of a labyrinth. The tone of the film moves from great joy to wrenching sorrow; from stark simplicity to ceremonial pomp. It is life as it is lived by the people of the world, each one, as the film suggests, in a personal labyrinth.

In the Labyrinth was first released as a multi-screen presentation for Chamber III of the Labyrinth at Expo 67. These separate images were integrated into a single strand of film, using a "five-on-one" cinematic technique.

    I waited in line for 2½ hours to see this film at the Labyrinth Pavillion at Expo '67. After having seen it, I walked out and put mysef right back in queue to see it again. I was 13 years old and although at the time I didn't fathom all of the value of having watched, it had a profound effect on how I stgarted to look around me and look at the world then and since. I was able to remember only a few scenes watchng this again, scenes that I thought I had forgotten about. Wonderful work. Makes me think of the more recent Ron Fricke films... Thanks for calling attention to this masterwork.

    Yes, 720p is broken it seems, too bad because this film really requires a decent resolution....
