  • Collated from film collector and historian Raymond Rohauer's private library, and featuring over five hours of footage, AVANT-GARDE 2: EXPERIMENTAL CINEMA FROM 1928-1954 presents an astounding collection of short films. The set includes the sexually charged "Geography of the Body" by Willard Maas, a suggestive montage of mechanical contraptions in motion; "The Cage," a silent surrealist film by Sidney Peterson, based on ocular symbolism; and "The Fall of the House of Usher" by James Watson and Melville Webber, an adaptation of Edgar Alan Poe's story featuring Cubist sets. The collection also features four films by Stan Brakhage, including his first movie INTERIM, shot in 1952, as well as works by Gregory J. Markopoulos, Jean Mitry, Paul Lenigerman, Marie Menken, and Dimitri Kirsanoff. This collection gives cinephiles access to rare avant-garde movies by influential experimental artists who pioneered groundbreaking visual effects and editing.
