  • 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

  • On the Camera Arts and Consecutive Matters: The Writings of Hollis Frampton

    As Hollis Frampton's photographs and celebrated experimental films were testing the boundaries of the camera arts in the 1960s and 1970s, his provocative and highly literate writings were attempting to establish an intellectually resonant form of discourse for these critically underexplored fields. It was a time when artists working in diverse disciplines were beginning to pick up cameras and produce films and videotapes, well before these practices were understood or embraced by institutions of contemporary art.

  • The Music and Sound of Experimental Film

    This book explores music/sound-image relationships in non-mainstream screen repertoire from the earliest examples of experimental audiovisuality to the most recent forms of expanded and digital technology. It challenges presumptions of visual primacy in experimental cinema and rethinks screen music discourse in light of the aesthetics of non-commercial imperatives.

  • After Uniqueness: A History of Film and Video Art in Circulation

    Images have never been as freely circulated as they are today. They have also never been so tightly controlled. As with the birth of photography, digital reproduction has created new possibilities for the duplication and consumption of images, offering greater dissemination and access. But digital reproduction has also stoked new anxieties concerning authenticity and ownership.

    Jonas Mekas has worked together with Andy Warhol, George Maciunas, John Lennon, and many others.

  • Paul Winkler - Australian Icons

    These images are clearly marked by the use of devices to create them. Winkler may briefly show the unaltered image in the beginning of a film. But inevitably processing will occur, and Winkler’s “low-tech invention pushes the possibilities of comparativel

  • Gunvor Nelson: Light Years

    A DVD+book boxset containing four restored films by Gunvor Nelson and a 124-page book of interviews and critical articles by Julie Savelli.

    The Swedish-American artist Gunvor Nelson figures among the most important experimental filmmakers of her generation. Her work considerably influenced the New American Cinema at the end of the 1960s, as much by its themes (women, the body, memory, dreams) as by its formal investigations (animation, collage, found footage).
