Masterworks of American Avant-garde Experimental Film 1920-1970



Flicker Alley anuncia la publicación de una compilación de treinta películas del cine de vanguardia norteamericano en formato Blue Ray y DVD. Masterworks of American Avant-garde Experimental Film 1920-1970 consta de cuatro discos que incluyen trabajos paradigmáticos de la experimentación fílmica en Estados Unidos. Sinfonías urbanas, documentos poéticos, narraciones surrealistas, prácticas de música visual y trabajos de reciclaje audiovisual confluyen en una edición que combina películas clásicas de la tradición vanguardista (Manhatta, Meshes of the Afternoon, A MOVIE) con piezas a descubrir de cineasta menos reconocidos (1941, Love It / Leave It, Transport).
