Intimate visions. The cinema of Chick Strand (I)


A contemporary of Stan Brakhage, Bruce Conner and Bruce Baillie, a joint co-founder of the distributor Canyon Cinema in 1961, Chick Strand (1931-2009) was a seminal filmmaker in the West Coast underground. Her films, pieces of poetic abstraction and found footage, perfectly combine the style and technique of avant-garde cinema with ethnographic issues. This programme, selected by Mark Webber, includes Strand’s most important films, in new copies restored courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
