A collection of articles on a neglected period in American avant-garde cinema. With one exception, all are original to this volume, and many are the first to treat comprehensively such early filmmakers as Mary Ellen Bute, Theodore Huff, and Douglass Crockwell. Editor Horak's introduction surveys the milieu and aspirations of these filmmakers and traces their relation to amateur and documentary film traditions. Also included is a listing of all American avant-garde films produced in the years before WWII, and a bibliography of criticism, literature, and news accounts. Includes photographs (mainly frame enlargements). Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
