About Bridges - Delia's credit

Delia made music for third film by Madelon Hooykaas and Elsa Stansfield, About Bridges (1975). The original Dutch title is Overbruggen.[1]

About Bridges shows the perception and the experience of bridges in three different ways: by the artist, the worker and the user. The film is presented as a cinematic equivalent to the experience of crossing a bridge. The film was conceived and shot in Amsterdam, a city of bridges, and follows three interwoven working themes.

The only surviving copy of Delia's music for About Bridges (and One Of These Days) was Madelon Hooykaas' copy on half inch tape which Madelon said were to be given for conservation and distribution to the EYE Film Museum in Amsterdam.[2]
