James Broughton, This Is It, 1971

James Broughton, This Is It (1971). Robert Greenspun, the New York Times: “James Broughton’s creation myth, This Is It, places a two-year-old Adam and a bright apple-red balloon in a backyard garden of Eden, and works a small miracle of the ordinary. And since that miracle is what his film is about, he achieves a kind of casual perfection in matching means and ends.”
