Jean Mitry in Avant-Garde: Experimental Cinema: Vol. 2

Avant-Garde: Experimental Cinema: 1928-1954: Vol. 2

1928 NR

Seminal works of experimental cinema from 1928 to 1954 -- culled from the extraordinary collection of avant-garde proponent Raymond Rohauer -- are compiled here in all their maverick glory. The films include works by Stan Brakhage, Willard Maas, Gregory Markopoulos, Marie Menken, Dimitri Kirsanoff, Jean Mitry and Sidney Peterson. And don't miss Isidore Isou's Venom and Eternity, which caused a riot at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival.
