Lovers of cinema : the first American film avant-garde, 1919-1945 ( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lovers of Cinema will become an essential point of reference for the future study of cinema's early years. Horak's extensive introduction surveys the milieu and aspirations of these pioneering filmmakers and traces their relation to amateur and documentary film traditions. Also included in the book is a listing of all American avant-garde films produced in the years before World War II and a bibliography of the most relevant criticism, literature, and news accounts. Many of the early avant-garde films discussed here, such as Tell-Tale Heart, Mr. Motorboat's Last Stand, and Poem 8, were lost until their rediscovery and restoration by Horak
Making images move : photographers and avant-garde cinema by Jan-Christopher Horak ( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Making Images Move, Jan-Christopher Horak looks at the work of eight European and American photographers whose films illustrate the gradual fragmentation of realistic narratives during the last eighty years. In close analyses of specific works, he shows how the visions of early practitioners such as Paul Strand and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, who tried to create meaningful political statements using modernist techniques, gave way to the more personal - though no less socially conscious - creations of 1960s and 1970s filmmakers such as Chris Marker, Robert Frank, and Danny Lyon. Even documentary became more subjective, with Helen Levitt pioneering the use of the handheld camera and intuitive editing in her 1946 film, In the Street. Horak argues that photographers who have ventured into filmmaking, while fruitfully exploiting the differences between the two genres, often have been able to retain both their technical styles and complex thematic concerns. Including a filmography of more than 130 photographer-filmmakers, Making Images Move illuminates the instrumental role of these artists in the evolution of experimental cinema
