The book includes the first publication of Gidal's text from 1978, with a new introduction. Gidal in this dense theoretical essay deals with the limits of language and representation in the practice of experimental filmmaking and writing. Considered as one of the most influential experimental filmmakers, Gidal's lost text “The Author as Producer of Nothing”, will give a new insight into the theoretical and political context to the artistic film practices.
