RE:VOIR is a video label for classic and contemporary experimental cinema. The collection currently comprises over seventy titles, including films from the Dadaist, Surrealist and Letterist movements, as well as films from the American avant-garde, film diaries, arthouse features, animated works and hand-painted films. RE:VOIR is devoted to giving a wider audience access to a relatively unknown yet rich and diverse body of cinema, and to disseminating the major works of experimental film at the highest possible quality. Each release receives rigorous attention and extensive preparation, and yields an object of enduring integrity and quality for collection, discovery, and reflection. Most films are accompanied by a booklet of explanatory texts, sometimes including unpublished writing by the filmmaker, which can take the form of an entire book to allow the audience to properly contextualize the film, as with the releases of Walden and Lost Lost Lost by Jonas Mekas, Recreation by Robert Breer, Tom Tom, the Piper’s Son by Ken Jacobs and Rameau’s Nephew by Michael Snow.
DVD gathering 16 films by Vivian Ostrovsky made between 1982 and 2014.
"An intimate – yet humorous – act of cultural resistance, the cinema of Vivian Ostrovsky is a gesture, implying the filmmaker’s entire body – as she travels around the world, carrying the gear, framing with a camera-eye. She digs in archival footage for an immense repertory of cinematic gestures performed by others – and playfully edits them with her own Super-8 shots. Multi-culturalism and polyglotism are woven into this poetics of displacement."
