The First 40


Bibi Hansen
From the diaries

3 min. 9 sec

Dedicated to Matsuo Basho

I filmed the young Bibi Hansen in 1966 as a screen test for a film I wanted to make out the life of a young girl growing up in New York. The film was never made. This footage was taken in Central Park. The haiku in the film is by Matsuo Basho in Mobuyuki Yussa translation.
