Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century

Free radicals a history of experimental film ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This feature-length documentary provides a vivid, eye-opening, and appropriately personal introduction to one of the most important, yet perpetually marginalized, realms of filmmaking: avant-garde cinema. Achieving the near-impossible task of doing justice in a mere 82 minutes to this incredibly rich, varied, and expansive domain, FREE RADICALS is as expertly constructed an introduction to the topic as one could hope for, thanks in large part to the film's privileging of rare interviews with some of the most important filmmakers in the avant-garde tradition (including Jonas Mekas, Peter Kubelka, Stan Brakhage, and Hans Richter), and its inclusion of several films in their entirety. The film's sincere admiration for its subject is best reflected by Chodorov's own description: "I wanted to share a few of the films I love and introduce you to some of the free, radical artists who made them"--Container

Tom Verlaine and Jimmy Rip music for experimental film ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Innovative and influential musicians Tom Verlaine and Jimmy Rip team up to reawaken the spirit of the avant-garde. To films drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, Verlaine and Rip perform newly composed musical scores. There is a wide variation of tempos and style in both films and music, with some pieces ambient in tone, while others are quick-paced, abstract, serene, or intense. Surprisingly modern, these experimental art films from the 1920s and their new soundtracks make for an entertaining voyage into the cinematic past
