The Ballad of John Latouche

Howard Pollack

Oxford University Press

Latouche had a side career in film. This included writing songs for two avant-garde films by Hans Richter, Dreams That Money Can Buy and 8 x 8. He also wrote the narration for a Herbert Matter film about Alexander Calder, and began his own film company, Aries Productions, which produced Maya Deren’s last completed film, The Very Eye of Night, and an animated film based on his poem “The Peppermint Tree.” In one instance, he started to direct his own short, Presenting Jane, in conjunction with his friendship with the New York poets, but the film was never completed.
