The essential prose by Dorothy Bendon Van Ghent( Book )

4 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Avant-garde. experimental cinema, 1922-1954( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before home video there flourished an alternative cinema culture on college campuses and around art theaters, where foreign film fare was often accompanied by a short subject. As reliable 16mm film equipment became available to non-professionals, artists independent of film centers began experimenting with cinema. Serious film societies sprang up in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, holding semi-private screenings of non-commercial artistic films. For years, these pictures have been exhibited only in infrequent museum screenings, if at all. This collection is of mainly American pictures, principally one-man artistic endeavors made from little more than an artist's desire to express feelings with a camera
Avant-garde. experimental cinema, 1928-1954( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally produced as individual silent or sound motion pictures in the United States, Germany, and France, these seventeen short films epitomize the development of experimental film from the 1920's through the 1950'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

The geography of the body by Willard Maas( Visual )

3 editions published between 1943 and 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A daring analogical pilgrimage, evoking the terrors and splendors of the human body as an undiscovered mysterious continent. The commentary by British poet George Barker uses imagist-symbolist technique." It is an historically important film as the first such study of the human form in film. Coming at the beginning of American avant-garde cinema, it helped liberate filmmakers and viewers from conventional narrative forms and film photography
