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

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 676 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

Kiki's memoirs by Kiki( Book )

7 editions published between 1930 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Century's first truly independent women, she cut a wide swath of color and passion wherever she went. Man Ray, Foujita, Kisling, and others immortalized her in their work. Crowds roared for her raunchy songs at the artists' boite, Le Jockey. She appeared in nine films, including Leger's famous Ballet Mecanique. And she painted hundreds of portraits and dream-like landscapes, many of which are included in these memoirs, working in a fresh naive style that made her

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in Philadelphia in 1890, Man Ray settled in Paris in 1921 to join in with the Dada movement. He was a radically experimental artist of genius who won immense critical acclaim for his photographic work. In the 1920s, Man Ray directed four films which, although they are little known to the general public, made him a major figure in avant-garde cinema. His film-making was as radical as his pictures and his objects. This is a collection of his works including 10 short home movies never before released

Ballet mecanique by Fernand Léger( Visual )

4 editions published between 1924 and 1990 in Undetermined and French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The opening title "Charlot présente le Ballet mécanique" is presented by a cut-out likeness of Charlie Chaplin. The film then begins. A woman swings in a swing. Close-ups of a hat, then lips. The lips smile. Cut to wheels (gears) turning. The swinging woman is then printed upside-down. Quick close-ups of clocks' gears, machines, and fractured and faceted images. Cuts of trucks and feet marching. A circle and a triangle quickly alternate frames, creating a fast flickering effect (in the original print, the circle and triangle were hand-painted, but not in this print). Pistons move, egg beaters whir, and then a close-up of eyes. An older woman carrying a laden basket walks up some outdoor stairs. This last footage is repeated. An intertitle appears: On a volé un collier de perles de 5 millions. O's and harnesses shaped like O's are quickly intercut. Another intertitle appears: ZOV. The following images are cut in quick succession: a woman's head; Uncle Sam; disembodied legs; a clock; and a hat and shoe. The film ends with the cut-out Chaplin reappearing
Emak bakia : cinépoèm by Man Ray( Visual )

in Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exhibiting Man Ray's early Dada affiliations, Emak-Bakia ("Leave me alone" in Basque) combines a series of visual metaphors in a non-linear structure. Juxtaposes images that evoke the elements of cinema with Dada emblems and employs a fragmented narrative. "Its reasons for being are its inventions of light-forms and movements, while the more objective parts interrupt the monotony of abstract inventions or serve as punctuation

Le Paris des années 1920 : avec Kiki de Montparnasse by Xavier Girard( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris, 1918-1928, ce sont les années folles. Il faut oublier la guerre, essayer toutes les nouveautés, tous les plaisirs. Rien n'est plus excitant que de se montrer dans les lieux à la mode, et rencontrer en une seule nuit l'élite artistique de la capitale, des bars-dancing de Montmartre à Montparnasse, est une chose toute naturelle. Sous ses airs de bal mondain, la "décade des illusions" n'en est pas moins complexe et ses contradictions, spectaculaires. Les modernes y côtoient les nostalgiques de l'ordre classique. On y fait souvent "le grand écart" entre les salons chics du Faubourg Saint-Germain et le bistrot des halles. Le jazz et l'accordéon, le groupe des Six et Stravinski se partagent la scène, tout comme le cinéma en plein boum et le théâtre d'avant- garde. Dadaïstes et surréalistes s'y disputent l'honneur de faire scandale. Parmi ses "monstres sacrés", on compte nombre d'expatriés fortunés et de filles sans le sous
