James Brougton’s This Is It

This lovely film from 1971 has been called James Broughton’s "creation myth."  It’s an absolute delight.  It runs at about 9 minutes and with the sitar background becomes a bit trancelike in parts.  The title "This Is It" comes from a poem of James Broughton’s that I had the good fortune to come across years ago while in Port Angeles.  It was printed on a little handcard and I remember thinking, Wow.  Who is this guy James Broughton.  A woman’s voice recites the poem at the 3 minute mark.  Fits beautifully with this film.
