A poet who fell into poverty and madness, Christopher MacLaine directed four features between 1953 and 1959. These films were rescued from obscurity by the American director Stan Brakhage, who considered Scotch Hop (1959) his ultimate masterpiece. Pessimistic and provocative, McLaine is well known for his first film The End (1953), where he takes on the role of a doomsday prophet.

Ses quatre films réalisés entre 1953 et 1959 sont sauvés de l’oubli par le cinéaste américain Stan Brakhage qui considérait Scotch Hop (1959) comme son ultime chef d’œuvre. Pessimiste et provocateur, Christopher MacLaine reste associé à son premier film The End (1953) dans lequel il s’improvise prophète de la fin des temps.
