  • Vivian Ostrovsky - Plunge

    DVD gathering 16 films by Vivian Ostrovsky made between 1982 and 2014.

    "An intimate – yet humorous – act of cultural resistance, the cinema of Vivian Ostrovsky is a gesture, implying the filmmaker’s entire body – as she travels around the world, carrying the gear, framing with a camera-eye. She digs in archival footage for an immense repertory of cinematic gestures performed by others – and playfully edits them with her own Super-8 shots. Multi-culturalism and polyglotism are woven into this poetics of displacement."

    - Bérénice Reynaud

  • Nina Danino - Rupture/Rapture/Jouissance: The Religious Trilogy 1990-1997

    Nina Danino is one of the foremost British experimental filmmakers of her generation. Her films explore the relationship of image to sound, and of theory to practice. She draws upon her own personal history as well as literary and artistic works, which are filtered through a poetic interpretation of feminist theory that foregrounds women’s personal experience and expression. These inspirations are restructured through image-making, editing and voice performances to create original works of striking intensity and emotional force.

  • Cinéma absolu: Avant-garde 1920-1930

    Il s'agit de l'étude la plus complète à ce jour des relations entre peinture et cinéma dans les années 1920. Des artistes et poètes (Duchamp, Man Ray, Picabia, Malévitch, Léger, Artaud, Moholy-Nagy, Ruttmann, Desnos...) font du cinéma un chantier d'expériences. Le cinéma se fait ainsi cubiste, dadaïste, abstrait, constructiviste, surréaliste... Les notions d'avant-garde, d'expérience et d'expérimentation se trouvent donc revisitées.

    Patrick de Haas a enseigné l'histoire de l'art à l'Université Paris-1 (Panthéon-Sorbonne)

  • Mythology for the Soul: The Collected Poems of Storm De Hirsch

    Storm De Hirsch began publishing poetry and art criticism in American little magazines in the 1950s. Her work arrived in the vacuum of American postwar poetry and with no clear affiliation. It was on the periphery of the east coast Beat movement, engaging punctuative declarations, onomatopoeia, chorus repetitions and sensual, ornithological and Cabalistic imagery. De Hirsch’s poems are shamanistic, bearing properties of the magic ritual and incantation, and her mysticism as well as her passions for new forms led her in the visionary direction of the New American Cinema.
