Edited by Prosper Hillairet, this new English translation brings together the principal texts, interviews, and speeches by the pioneering filmmaker and feminist Germaine Dulac (1882 1942), a major figure in the history of experimental film.
Standish Lawder And The Cubist Cinema
The complete text of Standish Lawder's pioneering study of the European avant-garde of the 1920s, The Cubist Cinema, accompanied by two essays on his films, this book is an attempt both to appreciate Lawder's singular achievement as an art historian and his importance as a film artist.
Radical Cinema by Christian Lebrat
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, 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This collection of Lebrat's essays has been expanded to include previously unpublished texts and essays on Lebrat's own work as an artist.
