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

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 719 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

Fort des succès de ses superproductions réalisées au sein des studios Pathé et Albatros, Jean Epstein devient son propre producteur et fonde en 1926 Les Films Jean Epstein. Avide d'expérimentations nouvelles, il joue avec la matière cinéma pour construire des narations qui ne doivent plus rien au théâtre ou à la littérature et réalise quelques-uns de ses chefs-d'oeuvre. Il y a d'abord Mauprat, incursion dans le film d'époque tourné en décors naturels d'après l'oeuvre de Georges Sand. L'année suivante marque le retourau mélodrame contemporain avec Six et demi, onze. Viennent ensuite La Glace à trois faces et enfin La Chute de la maison Usher, adaptation hallucinée de la nouvelle d'Edgar Poe en 1928. La chute... sera l'ultime production des Films Jean Epstein criblés de dettes et condamnés par l'arrivée du parlant
