Experimental Cinema, The Film Reader brings together key writings on
American avant-garde cinema to explore the long tradition of underground filmmaking from its origins in the 1920s to the work of contemporary film and video artists.

The Reader traces the development of major movements such as the New American Cinema of the 1960s and the Structuralist films of the 1970s, examining the work of key practitioners and recovering neglected
filmmakers.

Contributors focus on the ways in which underground films have explored issues of gender, sexuality and race, and foreground important technical innovations such as the use of Super 8mm and video.

Each section features an editor's introduction setting debates in their context.

Sections include:

*Origins of the American avant-garde cinema - Explores the influence of the birth of experimental film, and considers the early work of filmmakers such as Maya Deren.

*The 1960s experimental film explosion - traces the development of the New American Cinema, examining the influence and work of key filmmakers such as Kenneth Anger, Jack Smith, Andy Warhol, Stan Brakhage, and collage filmmaker Bruce Conner.

*Structuralism in the 1970s - Identifies and discusses the main figures in Structuralist film including Michael Snow and Hollis Frampton.

*Alternative cinemas - Examines the work of recent filmmakers such as Isaac Julien, Julie Dash, and Barbara Hammer, and considers the future of experimental film.
