Avant-garde Film by Michael O'Pray
Book DescriptionAvant-Garde Film: Forms, Themes and Passions examines the variety of concerns and practices that have comprised the long history of avant-garde film at a level appropriate for undergraduate study. It covers the developments of experimental film-making since the modernist explosion in the 1920s in Europe through to the Soviet film experiments, the American Underground cinema and the French New Wave, structuralism and contemporary gallery work of the young British artists. Through in-depth case-studies, the book introduces students not only to the history of the avant-garde but also to varied analytical approaches to the films themselves - ranging from abstraction (Richter, Ruttmann) to surreal visions (Bunuel, Wyn Evans), underground subversion (Jack Smith, Warhol) to experimental narrative (Deren and Antonioni).

Michael O'Pray explores the ideas of art historian Adrian Stokes, who developed Kleinian-based concepts of carving and modelling. O'Pray argues that these concepts replace traditional notions of realism and montage in film theory and offer a set of aesthetics that encompass both mainstream and art cinema.
