Belson started as a painter before turning to film in the late 1940s, inspired by seeing films by Fischinger and McLaren. Using long paper scrolls, Belson painted fluidly down the length of the scroll, then filmed the imagery in 16mm film, frame by frame. Mandala is his first film to use mandala imagery, and an early expression of his interest in eastern philosophies. The soundtrack is Balinese gamelan music.
