  • 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?

  • Secession from the Broadcast

    Gene Youngblood’s lecture, Secession from the Broadcast, is cartographic by design, a lantern & compass for those determined to extirpate their operations from under the clutches of the mass media hydra. Breathing as though alive, through this manifesto Youngblood’s words serve as call to action, a call for a rebellion of intensely illuminated and unexampled proportions. Fused by Youngblood’s innate desires, this work showcases a praxis and research that spans most of a lifetime.

  • How you live your story: Selected Works by Kevin Jerome Everson

    The American artist Kevin Jerome Everson has created a remarkable body of moving image work that co-exists within film and art exhibition contexts. With a sense of place and history, his films, shot primarily on 16mm, combine scripted and documentary moments with touches of formalism. The focus is on craft and duration, and the gestures and tasks caused by certain physical and socio-economic conditions in the lives, labour and leisure of working-class Black Americans and people of African descent.
