Veteran experimental filmmaker Bruce Conner directed this compelling collage of sounds and images inspired by a classic gospel song. Conner has made a number of films that have matched found images with music from his favorite performers (ranging from Ray Charles to Devo), and in the mid-1980's he began working on a documentary about the influential gospel vocal group the Soul Stirrers. While the documentary was never completed, Conner has combined some of the footage he shot for that project with archival film from a variety of sources and edited them to accompany the Soul Stirrers' 1946 recording of the classic spiritual "His Eye Is On The Sparrow". The result is a short film that celebrates this music as well as the time and place that helped to inspire it.
