La historia del cine experimental en nuestro país tiene pocos nombres y filmografías breves. José Val del Omar inicia esa lista. Su caso ha sido el de una admiración crecida lenta y constantemente. No existe otra figura en nuestra historia como la de Val

Icon of the American avant-garde Hollis Frampton made rigorous, audacious, brainy, and downright thrilling films, leaving behind a body of work that remains unparalleled. In the 1960s, having started out as a poet and photographer, Frampton became fascinated with the possibilities of 16 mm filmmaking.
Four young people are trying to understand why their friend, a young woman, committed a suicide. A film made up of disconnected scenes weaving between past and present. The title of the film comes from a poem by Stuart Perkoff which tells that some young people felt (around 1960) that everything is against them, so much that even the trees in the parks and streets seemed to them like guns pointing at their very existence.
Futurism and early cinema shared a fascination with dynamic movement and speed, presenting both as harbingers of an emerging new way of life and new aesthetic criteria. And the Futurists quickly latched on to cinema as a device with great potential to manipulate our perceptions in order to create a new world.
Aberration of Light: Dark Chamber Disclosure is a site-specific live projection performance that was a highlight of this year’s festival (36th Toronto International Film Festival). In the projection booth, Brooklyn-based artists Sandra Gibson and Luís Recoder distilled a found 35mm commercial film print into rich, gorgeous beams of light that danced on the screen, the auditorium walls, and the faces of the rapt, dreamy spectators who filled the theater at the Ontario Gallery of Art. (The movie that was the basis for the work was never identified to the audience, and the artists have never watched it in its entirety.) The introductory movement of the piece is a marvel: tiny lines of white light that were movie credits in a past life shimmer onscreen like sunlight filtering through deep water. Occasionally a half-glimpsed face from the original film surfaces deep within the piece like a mirage in the desert; other moments resemble flashlights dancing through fog. The audio to the piece, created and mixed live in the theater by the Dallas-born contemporary composer Olivia Block, is at once organic and otherworldly. In addition to sounds produced digitally and musically, Block works with sounds she has collected from the world around her. Occasionally, these feel familiar: is that the sound of rushing water? Peeper frogs chirping on a summer night? The plaintive bleat of an alarm? The whir of an airplane about to take off? The pop of distant fireworks? Together, the visual and aural components of Aberration of Light are a symphony of lights and darks, quiets and louds, that are greater in concert then the sum of their parts.” (Livia Bloom, Filmmaker Magazine)
Este libro se basó en artículos que publiqué entre 1967 y 1970 en The Los Angeles Free Press, el primero y el más influyente de los periódicos underground que florecieron en los Estados Unidos en esa época. Las columnas sobre nuevos medios aparecieron bajo el logo "Cine expandido", un término acuñado entre 1966 por el cineasta experimental y artista pionero de multimedios norteamericano Stan Vanderbeek. Investigué y escribí el resto del libro en 1969 y principios de 1970.
Boston's living legend and a master of small gauge filmmaking! This is volume one and only a drop on the bucket of masterpieces which Saul Levine has produced over the decades.
British super-8 filmmaker Ben Barton has released a limited edition blu ray of his film 'Stella Erratica'.
'Stella Erratica' was funded by David Bowie just a few months before his death in 2015. The film was then painstakingly finished by hand over the next two years. It has been screened at many festivals internationally, but is now available to buy for the first time.
A series of four films - Cinematographic painting by compounds, mergers of different cinematic levels in multiple exposures. Structure of the image from color dots and the image resolution in dots of color, building the image from image surfaces and plana
Atelier Impopulaire Split #1 consists of an original text by Bruce McClure, an architect and performer based in New York. It is titled Know Thy Instrument, and based on a lecture given by Hollis Frampton on 30 October 1968, then published as A Lecture. Both with his text and projection performance, McClure aims at reflecting upon the body/technology dynamics, the relation with the whole projection apparatus, and the implications deriving from the removal of some of its parts. This all results in a modification of its mechanical structure, thus provoking a systemic abstraction of the obscurity/light duality in the guise of sound patterns.
