The Sacred Art of Tibet (1972, 28 mins.) was inspired by a gallery showing of unique Tibetan thankas, religious scroll paintings, rupas and other sacred images and artifacts. Jordan set out to present a visual experience of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism, and the resulting film rises above conventional documentary form to become a beautiful and autonomous work of art in its own right. The Visible Compendium (1990, 17 mins.) is an animated film that took two years to make and is one of Jordan's most technically refined works to date. It takes the viewer on a trip through idyllic lands where plants smile, an image of a tiger appears in the sun, and nude women wander about comfortably within an enchanted landscape. A beautiful and densely constructed work, rich in enigmatic and allusive images.
