Avant-garde : experimental cinema of the 1920s and '30s( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century

These three stories, about a trio of independent young women, are set in London--a city Paul Morand loved and which continued to fascinate him long after he worked there as an attaché at the French embassy from 1913 to 1916. Composed around the time of the First World War, these stylish, poetic and highly original tales came as a breath of fresh air on the French literary scene of the Twenties. They made an immediate impact on writers as diverse as Cocteau and Giraudoux, as well as Marcel Proust, a great friend and supporter of Morand, who subsequently contributed a foreword for the book

A feverish classic from one of the modern masters of French prose. No one can keep up with Pierre Niox, the speediest antiques dealer in Paris, although not necessarily the most competent. As he dashes about at a dizzying pace, his impatience becomes too much to bear for those around him; his manservant, his only friend and even his cat abandon him. He begins to find that while he is racing through life, it is passing him by. However, when he falls in love with the languid, unpunctual Hedwige, the man in a hurry has to learn how to slow down

Paris by night by Brassaï( Book )

31 editions published between 1933 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The city of Paris bewitched Brassaï. Working as a journalist by day, by night he roamed the streets of the capital and visited its bistros, sharing moments in the lives of the prostitutes and peddlers, down-and-outs, and illicit lovers who lived on the margins of society. Their nocturnal surroundings fascinated the artist, whose photographs are as much an exploration of the technical challenge of portraying darkness as portraits of a hauntingly dramatic night world. Paris by Night, first published in 1933, features sixty-two of these poetic images, and has become an acknowledged classic of urban photography. Brassaï moved in the same circles as the surrealistshe met Picasso in 1932, and worked on Le Minotaure, the famous surrealist review. He retained a very individual creative vision, however, commenting: The surreal effect of my pictures was nothing more than reality made fantastic through a particular vision. All I wanted to express was reality, for nothing is more surreal. This uniquely modern perspective has inspired a new generation of art critics and historians, and the centenary of Brassaïs birth was the catalyst for major retrospective exhibitions at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the National Gallery in Washington, and the Hayward Gallery in London. The current reissue of Paris by Night brings one of the last centurys key photographic works back into print
