  • Standish Lawder and The Cubist Cinema

    Standish Lawder was a film artist and an art historian. This book is an attempt both to appreciate Lawder as an artist and to make his singular achievement as an art historian more available.

    Links are provided to some of Lawder’s films as well as many of the seminal works in the early history of experimental film.
