Description - Experimental Cinema, the Film Reader by Wheeler Winston-Dixon
Experimental Cinema, The Film Reader brings together key writings on American avant-garde cinema to explore the long tradition of underground filmmaking from its origins in the 1920s to the work of contemporary film and video artists. The Reader traces the development of major movements such as the New American Cinema of the 1960s and the Structuralist films of the 1970s, examining the work of key practitioners and recovering neglected filmmakers. Contributors focus on the ways in which underground films have explored issues of gender, sexuality and race, and foreground important technical innovations such as the use of Super 8mm and video. Includes essays by: Sydney P. Adams, Stan Brakhage, Wheeler Winston Dixon, David Ehrenstein, Gwendolyn Audrey Foster, Surajan Ganguly, Gloria Gibson, Peter Gidal, Kate Haugh, Chris Holmlund,
