LUX and Re:Voir are proud to announce the release of the DVD 'Shoot
Shoot Shoot', the first time that works from this defining period in
British artists’ filmmaking have been made available on DVD or
video. The 1960s and 1970s were groundbreaking decades in which independent
filmmakers challenged cinematic convention. In England, much of the
innovation took place at the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative,
an artist-led organisation that incorporated a distribution agency,
cinema space and film workshop. Within this unique laboratory, filmmakers
were able to control every aspect of the creative process, and the
physical production of a film – the printing and processing – became
vital to its form and content. Many of the films made at the LFMC explored
the physical nature of the film material, using production processes
that shaped the form and content of the final works.

The “Shoot Shoot Shoot" is 2 hours long and contains 13 complete
films accompanied by bilingual English / French booklet written by project
curator Mark Webber, with a foreword by A. L. Rees (author of “A
History of Experimental Film and Video” BFI, 1999).

Contains the following films: At The Academy (Guy Sherwin 1974), Little
Dog For Roger (Malcolm Le Grice 1967), Shepherd’s Bush (Mike Leggett
1971), Hall (Peter Gidal 1968-69), Dirty (Stephen Dwoskin 1965-67), Marvo
Movie (Jeff Keen 1967), Broadwalk (William Raban 1972), Fforest Bay II
(Chris Welsby 1973), Slides (Annabel Nicolson 1970), Film No. 1 (David
Crosswaite 1971), Dresden Dynamo (Lis Rhodes 1971), Footsteps (Marilyn
Halford 1974), Leading Light (John Smith 1975).
