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

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 667 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
Avant-garde. experimental cinema, 1922-1954( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 313 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

Tom Verlaine and Jimmy Rip : music for experimental film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Innovative and influential musicians Tom Verlaine and Jimmy Rip team up to reawaken the spirit of the avant-garde. To films drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, Verlaine and Rip perform newly composed musical scores. There is a wide variation of tempos and style in both films and music, with some pieces ambient in tone, while others are quick-paced, abstract, serene, or intense. Surprisingly modern, these experimental art films from the 1920s and their new soundtracks make for an entertaining voyage into the cinematic past
Menilmontant by Dimitri Kirsanoff( Visual )

15 editions published between 1924 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menilmontant (25 min.) is a poetically told story of a young girl's hard life surrounded by poverty and violence, noted for its use of close-ups and montage. La P'tite Lilie (16 min.) is a tale of a pretty girl who falls in with bad company, inspired by early silent melodramas and popular songs. La Souriante Madame Beudet (27 min.) shows a woman trapped in a stifling marriage
The experimental avant garde series( Visual )

Charleston is an extremely rare short film by Jean Renoir. A black astronaut (who looks suspiciously like a white man in blackface) lands in Paris. There, he and a young woman begin to dance a mean and lascivious charleston
Ramuz cinéma une sélection de sept films adaptés de l'oeuvre romanesque de C.F. Ramuz( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La plupart des cinéastes suisses sont "passés par Ramuz". À eux seuls, Claude Goretta, Francis Reusser, Michel Soutter et Alain Tanner ont réalisé six films tirés de l'univers ramuzien. Plus que celles de tout autre auteur helvétique, les oeuvres de Ramuz ont suscité - dès 1933! - des adaptations pour le grand écran puis pour la télévision. Ramuz, quant à lui, s'est très vite intéressé au cinéma, a suivi de près son évolution et s'est prononcé à plusieurs reprises à son sujet. Par ailleurs, l'écriture de ce poète recèle un immense potentiel cinématographique. Rien d'étonnant donc que son oeuvre ait constitué une incontournable source d'inspiration pour des cinéastes russes, français et italiens. Au total, les romans de l'auteur de Derborence ont engendré vingt films. Cin&Lettres en a retenu sept, excluant les productions télévisuelles au profit de réalisations purement destinées au cinéma ou conçues comme telles, sur support pellicule. Puissent ces mises en images entretenir la présence de Ramuz, romancier universel au propos intemporel, et inciter à plonger dans la lecture de son oeuvre. Si tel était le cas, la raison d'être de ce projet s'en trouverait pleinement justifiée
