Description: The Act of Seeing With One's Own Eyes is an experimental short film directed by Stan Brakhage in 1971. It consists entirely of graphic footage from actual autopsies. The camera captures, close-up, the corpses of a man and woman in a Pittsburgh morgue. There is no narration. The film is collected on the Brakhage anthology collection from Criterion, although it's separated from the rest of the films due to its extremely graphic nature.~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide
