Description:
Less an introduction than a pocket-sized encyclopedia, this exhaustive look at American underground film up to 1967 begins with a short history of the movement’s European roots in the 1920s and 1930s before moving on to the American avant-garde’s most innovative and influential artists, such as Maya Deren, Gregory Markopoulos, Joseph Vogel, Jack Smith, Jonas Mekas, Stan Brakhage, Ken Jacobs, Marie Menkem, Kenneth Anger, and Andy Warhol. Extensive filmographies as well as a thirty-page list of archives, libraries, and distributors make this a fantastic resource.
