Transcendental meditative and contemplative short films DVD compilation. Printed at 1000 copies, and wrapped in a butcher's paper.
Available on DVD for the first time, this 2004 debut feature of avant-garde veteran (and Ohio-raised) Jennifer Reeves combines elements of narrative, experimental, and documentary techniques to create a truly lyrical example of personal storytelling. In The Time We Killed, Reeves burrows into the perspective of a reclusive woman (poet Lisa Jarnot) who tries to ignore the world outside of her New York apartment. But images from her past and current world events (from 9/11 to the war in Iraq) cause her to confront and fight her growing agoraphobia. Shot on a mix of 16mm and digital video, the brilliantly textured film has achieved extraordinary acclaim for such a radically experimental work and has won major prizes at the Berlin and Tribeca Film Festivals.
Der österreichischen Filmavantgarde gelang es immer wieder,
internationale Reputation zu erlangen. In den 80er und 90er Jahren
konnte vor allem Dietmar Brehm eine Vielzahl an nationalen und
internationalen Preisen erlangen. Laut Peter Tscherkassky sind seine
Filme das Ergebnis eines Arbeitsprozesses, in dem das Bildmaterial so
lange der Bearbeitung ausgesetzt wird, bis es seine größte Verdichtung
erreicht hat. Dieses Buch geht von Interviews mit dem Künstler aus, die

This DVD compilation, RESISTANCE[S], includes eight films and videos from Middle Eastern and North African artists. It's a panorama of contemporary experimental creativity from this region of the world. As international travellers, these filmmakers have forged their identities with the different cultures that they've encountered through periods of migration and exile. Using images to lead the narrative, each artist succeeds in raising fundamental questions relating to humanity, politics and aesthetics.
This epic documentary subtly introduces the complex world view of iconic filmmaker and theoretician Peter Kubelka (born 1934, Vienna). While Kubelka's radical and pioneering body of films is a highly condensed work of about an hour focussing on the essence of cinema, his legendary lectures often unfold over many hours. These lectures on "what is cinema" and "cooking as an art form" are frequently illuminated by the presentation of archaeological objects from Kubelka's eclectic collection. He considers his ongoing collecting to be an expanded film practice which explores the evolution of humanity. Martina Kudlácek has carefully woven an open-ended portrait which goes beyond the biographical to reveal fresh insights into the phenomenon of film.

The Lettrist movement is unique in the history of avant-garde formations. Founded by Isidore Isou in Paris immediately after World War II, it remains active to this day, having lost none of its radicalism, either aesthetic or ethical. In this book, Nicole Brenez presents the key figures and the basic concepts of Lettrist cinema, the art form within which their formal innovations proved the most far-reaching, prefiguring the breakthroughs of the nouvelle vague and the experiments of expanded cinema.
"Caldini emphasizes the idea of cinema as an activity of absolutely direct vision—an idea that, far from reclaimed by certain realist agendas, has always been, consciously or not, at the heart of the avant-garde."
"Anyone who has seen Caldini in action can confirm that his work environment privileges calm over agitation and reflection over continuous action. His body of work, based on anti-despair, appears eternal, dematerialized, and transcendent in the sense that its virtues and its beauty seem to reach far and beyond, and it seems to have existed since the beginning of time."
