Avant-Garde Film: Forms, Themes and Passions examines the variety of concerns and practices that have comprised the long history of avant-garde film. It covers the developments of experimental filmmaking since the modernist explosion in the 1920s in Europe through to the Soviet film experiments, the American Underground cinema, the French New Wave, structuralism and contemporary gallery work of the young British artists. Through in-depth case studies, the book introduces students not only to the history of the avant-garde but also to varied analytical approaches to the films themselves ranging from abstraction (Richter, Ruttmann) to surreal visions (Bunuel, Wyn Evans), underground subversion (Jack Smith, Warhol) to experimental narrative (Deren, Antonioni).
