Avant-garde : experimental cinema of the 1920s and '30s by Bret Wood( Visual )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Inverted narratives : new directions in storytelling by Bruce Posner( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early directors D.W. Griffith and Lois Weber develop the radical language of cinema narrative through audience-friendly melodramas made for nickelodeon theatres. Experimental fantasies are depicted in such independent productions as Moonland (c. 1926), Lullaby (1929) and The bridge (1929-30). Depression-era films by socially conscious filmmakers reshape drama as demonstrated in Josef Berne's brooding Black dawn (1933) and Strand and Hurwitz's biting Native land (1937-41): each picture a raw reality. Pardy and satire find their mark in Theodore Huff's Little geezer (1932) and Barlow, Hay and Le Roy's Even as you and I (1937). David Bradley's Sredni Vashtar by Saki (1940-43) boasts an inadvertent post-modern attitude
