Christian Lebrat - Radical Cinema


No votes yet

In Cinéma Radical, first published in French in 2008, the artist Christian Lebrat reflects on a cinema that “follows its own rules and questions the very definition of the medium.” His essays analyse the work of major film artists, including Stan Brakhage, Robert Breer, Marcel Duchamp, Germaine Dulac, Hollis Frampton, Ken Jacobs, Peter Kubelka, Fernand Léger, Maurice Lemaître, Man Ray, Jonas Mekas, Paul Sharits, and Michael Snow, among others.

This collection of Lebrat’s essays has been expanded to include previously unpublished texts and essays on Lebrat’s own work as an artist. Links are provided to many of the films discussed.

The book is available for Kindle here.
