Underground Yearbook: 1973

Wed, 2008-11-26 21:49
This is the third entry in my series of the underground film scene of the ’70s. You can follow the series here. 1973 was a big year for Stan Brakhage. As far as I can figure, he completed just four films in ‘73, but two major events occurred for him. One, he was awarded a Brandeis Citation. Second, editor Annette Michelson devoted the entire January issue of Artforum to both Brakhage and Sergei Eisenstein. Michelson herself wrote an influential piece on Brakhage called “Camera Lucida/Camera O

This is my second in a (hopefully) series of posts looking at the underground film scene of the 1970s, a period that, to me, gets criminally glossed over. The below is a collection of rough data of films, filmmakers and significant events happening in 1972. In 1971, Jonas Mekas ended his popular film column in the Village Voice, but 1972 saw the publication of a book collection: Movie Journal: The Rise of a New American Cinema 1959-1971, put out by Collier Books. The book doesn’t include all o

This post, and hopefully eventually a series of posts, combines two things I’m intrigued by. One is timelines. Generally, I’m usually pretty interested in knowing how one thing begat another and then the next. Secondly, I’m fascinated by the general black hole of information regarding ’70s underground film. While I’ve only begun reading into the history of underground film just within the past few years, so the “black hole” might just be in my own personal research, but it seems that writings

And Then I Read: EMSHWILLER, INFINITY X TWO

Tue, 2008-08-26 00:39
When I was young and discovering science fiction in the early 1960s, I began reading The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. There were many wonders within those pages, but what grabbed me first were the covers, lush color paintings of fantastic scenes. The magazine featured many artists, but my favorite was the one who signed his name EMSH, and was listed inside as Ed Emsh. His work captured the scenes in the magazine in wonderful detail, but more than that, they combined realism and ab
