Subversion by Duncan Reekie

Book Description

"Subversion" is the indispensable history of underground cinema, a hitherto untold story that ranges from the British independent and French avant-garde cinemas of the 1920s through the counterculture film movements of the 1960s to the microcinema resurgence of the 1990s and beyond. Challenging the simplistic 'art versus commerce' discourses that deadlock much writing around experimental cinema, "Subversion" not only discovers the cultural roots of underground filmmaking in bohemian cabarets of nineteenth-century Paris and the fairbooths of medieval London, but situates the underground as a radical and popular subculture alternative to both mainstream cinema and avant-garde film. With a wide historical breadth and new research material, "Subversion" is set to become an essential resource for filmmakers, researchers, political radicals, and cult film disciples of every faith.
