mm2 presents an overall picture of experimental film in the Netherlands since 1960. Each and every film mentioned is an expression of an inquiring mentality that, for each film convention, poses the question whether or not it can be done differently. The book contains a historical review, sixteen extensive interviews with authoritative experimental filmmakers and more than a hundred filmographies. Issued with a DVD entitled "Cadavre exquis : le cadvre exquis verra le film nouveau", a documentary film directed by Anna Abrahams and produced by Rongwrong. The film includes interviews with several experimental filmmakers as well as excerpts of their work.
