Description:This fascinating study of the compilation film has never been available in North America and has become quite scarce. Comprised of material from a wide variety of sources, compilation films have roots in Constructivism, Surrealism, and the work of The Situationalists as well as other artistic movements. Author Patrick Sjöberg—something of a legend in film and media studies—explores compilationalism in a wide variety of films, from Godard's multi-part Histoire(s) du cinéma to Oliver Stone's JFK.
