Abstract Film and Beyond
It's strange. I'm an abstract filmmaker from time to time, an experimental one, an underground one, a materialist one, a structuralist one, a documentarian, someone outside of previously existing categories. I take this stuff seriously: the history, the theory, the sense of purpose.. - &, yet, I'm amazed that such bks exist! I'm amazed that MIT wd publish such a thing. It's so SERIOUS & so outside the concerns of most people. Seeing it published is like seeing an endangered species nourished by more than one person. I understand why I care but I'm not so sure I understand why enuf other people do so to enable this bk & all the others that I have that're like it to exist. Having seen the Carnegie Museum of Art Film & Video Department winked out of existence & the Andy Warhol Museum Film & Video Department debilitated almost beyond existence, it's almost as if I expect bks like this to just disappear - never to be reprinted - embodying a lost knowledge.
