The man without a world by Eleanor Antin( Visual )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE MAN WITHOUT A WORLD is one of the most unusual, artistic and fantastic films of the American Indie history. There is nothing else like it!THE MAN WITHOUT A WORLD is credited to the legendary (and imaginary) 1920s Soviet director, Yevgeny Antinov. But the film is anything but old. In fact, Antinov himself is the creation of contemporary filmmaker Eleanor Antin. A world-renowned artist, author and performer, Antin has exhibited her work at major museums around the world. In her art. Antin explores history through the eyes of various personas, including Eleanor Nightingale (a nurse in the Crimean War) and Eleanora Antinova, the famous black ballerina in Diaghilev's Ballet Russe who wanted to star in Swan Lake but was only allowed "ethnic" roles like Pocahontas. This great and fictional dancer also appeared in Antin's earlier work From the Archives of Modern Art and The Last Night of Rasputin, also distributed by Milestone. The film is Antin's "love letter" to her mother, a former actress in the Yiddish theater of Poland, who was suffering from Alzheimer's disease at the time this film was created. Like the character Zevi in the film, Antin's mother yearned for the stages of Warsaw, but unlike him, she never made it to the big city. The film is also a love letter to the heyday of silent cinema, including a wonderful score performed by the legendary late silent film organist, Lee Erwin. THE MAN WITHOUT A WORLD is a moving, comic melodrama set in a typical shtetl (village) in Poland. The Jews' struggle against poverty and racial hatred is complicated by their own division into hostile political factions of the religious orthodoxy, assimilationists, socialists, Zionists, anarchists and survivors. While the Jews of the shtetl pursue their loves, politics, religion, business and dreams for the future, the Angel of Death is ever near ... "I make seemingly old films in order to enter the lost world of the past from the inside, not to stand outside of it and see it as history. The technology of a film determines a large part of what the audience sees. A Hollywood costume drama holds the subject of the film at the conventional distance of representation. I want my audience to experience this world as if from inside â€" but at the same time - with a sense of the distance they have traveled to get there."--Eleanor Antin
From the Archives of Modern Art : a documentary fiction( Visual )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Milestone favorite, Eleanor Antin is an acclaimed artist/filmmaker working for many years in installation, performance and video, She has built an impressive international reputation based in part on her historical impersonations including Eleanor Nightingale (a Crimean War nurse), the Black King (the leader of a Ship of Fools in a medieval passion play) and in this case, Eleanora Antinova. In this great project, an archivist attempts to put together the "lost years" of Eleanor Antinova, the once celebrated black ballerina of Diaghlev's Ballets Russes, when she returned to her native America to eke out a meager living in vaudeville and early movies. Her career in the States is documented through narrative and dance films - recently discovered - which she made back in the Depression, when times were bad, and even ballerinas stooped low. The six short films include comedies, spicy farces, even, alas, a semi-blue movie, along with vaudeville dance numbers and artistic interpretations. Antin has described From the Archives of Modern Art as a documentary fiction

Last night of Rasputin( Visual )

3 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the rediscovered film made in 1924 by the legendary Soviet silent film director, Yevgeny Antinov. "Despised by the modernists for his love of narrative, hated by the traditionalists for his modern techniques, disapproved of by the government for his self-indulgence and individualism, and ignored by their lackey scholars, he was loved only by the people." Along with his wife, the great African-American ballerina Eleanora Antinova, they created films that shocked the nation! In other words, this film, its director and its star could only originate from the seductive world of famed modern artist Eleanor Antin! Beloved by audiences, scholars, and critics, Antin has had a art career spanning four decades that is almost as legendary and far more real than her alter-ego, Antinov. Billed as "the final orgy and dreadful end of the notorious monk, Rasputin, on the eve of the Russian Revolution," THE LAST NIGHT OF RASPUTIN tells a story of pre-revolutionary Russia. Rasputin, confidante of the Tsarina, storms through St. Petersburg in endless orgies and bachannales. Into the aristocratic decadence come three friends from the productive classes - a worker, a student and a ballerina. The troika fall victim to evil doers but heroically triumph in the end. Antin's film with intertitles and music, employs acting and film techniques that simulate a silent film supposedly produced in the Soviet Union in 1924 at the start of the Soviet film renaissance. Poetic, surprising and hilarious, Antin's beautifully shot and lit film is a joy to watch. "Mayhem, murder, kidnapping, sex, and even cigarette smoking run riot through the film!"--Grace Glueck, New York Times
