  • L'émulsion Fantastique: Le Cinéma Selon Cécile Fontaine

    "I like working with film's materiality - the object becomes a material that I transform with non-filmic tools. Like an explorer, I have a go at the surfaces of film prints that I find or that are given to me: films of all genres, formats and origins. I transform their textures, colors and images by subjecting them to chemical reactions caused by various household products, creating new hybrid film objects through collage and recomposition, following motifs inspired by the original sources."

  • Migrant Thoughts: Cinematographic Intersections

    As a publishing act, Migrant Thoughts argues that the image is inevitably nomadic and inexorably migrant and, as Henri Bergson reminds us, is everywhere. Everything is image. We are images among images, and in this respect film is no more than one of the media through which images move. Images become a gesture of resistance, as by being just an image and not a just image, as Jean-Luc Godard said, they are worthy and can never be subdued by power, despotism or an all-too human will corrupted by the idea of ownership.

  • Passages du Cinema

    Comment « rendre compte » des expérimentations sans récit et comment « expérimenter » depuis les récits du cinéma narratif ? Dans les textes écrits par Prosper Hillairet, des passages s’opèrent, circulent dans les films, entre les films, les styles, les cinéastes, les époques. L’ ensemble, tour à tour consacré à l’avant-garde des années 20, comme aux cinéastes expérimentaux français des années 70 et 80, avec quelques incursions tardives dans le cinéma narratif, tisse une réflexion à partir du cinéma comme « forme visuelle ».

  • Alain Mazars: Rouges silence

    There's something extraordinarily personal about all of this. Extreme ambition, monstrous collages, an unusual and highly disconcerting obsession that doesn't let up for one minute, due in part to its diabolically relentless repetitions. It's what you might get if Eisenstein directed a Franco-Chinese re-make of Wild Strawberries in the suburbs of Paris.

  • Maria Lassnig: Film Works

    Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) is internationally recognized as one of the most important painters of the 20th and 21st centuries. The leitmotif of her painting, the act of rendering her body awareness visible, found additional expression in the films she made in New York in the early 1970s. And what films they are! Influenced by painting, but also by U.S. experimental film, the feminist movement, animation, and her new hometown of New York, Lassnig created a remarkable body of radically independent short films in just a few years.

  • Power Misses II: Cinema, Asian and Modern

    Like David James' earlier collection of essays, Power Misses: Essays Across (Un)Popular Culture (1996), the present volume, Power Misses II: Cinema, Asian and Modern is concerned with popular cultural activity that propose alternatives and opposition to capitalist media. Now with a wider frame of reference, it moves globally from west to east, beginning with films made during the Korean Democracy Movement, and then turning to socialist realism in China and Taiwan, and to Asian American film and poetry in Los Angeles. Several other avant-garde film movements in L.A.

  • Larry Gottheim - Fog Line

    Perfect works have a way of appearing unobtrusive or simple, the complexities seeming to be so correct that they flow—mesmerize one through their form—a form that bespeaks of harmony between many aesthetic concerns. Larry Gottheim's Doorway is such a film. His concern for working with edges, isolating details, the prominence of the frame as a shape and revealer of edges, love of photographic texture, are all dealt with lucidly in this film.

  • Girl Head: Feminism and Film Materiality

    Girl Head shows how gender has had a surprising and persistent role in film production processes, well before the image ever appears onscreen. For decades, feminist film criticism has focused on issues of representation: images of women in film. But what are the feminist implications of the material object underlying that image, the filmstrip itself? What does feminist analysis have to offer in understanding the film image before it enters the realm of representation?
