Glycerine Tears

Director: Michael Miner
Screenwriters: Michael Miner

Institute History

  • 1991 Sundance Film Festival


Bizarre unexplained images, cool monochrome photography with flashes of dense color, a haunting musical sound track. A first cousin to the film classics Eraserhead and Un Chien Andalou, Glycerine Tears is an immediate and beautifully crafted excursion into the depths of the surreal.

— John Cooper

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications.
