Early Masters of the Avant-Garde

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Drama, Art/Foreign
Release Date:January 1, 2004
Running time:61 minutes

Description: This program of early avant-garde/experimental cinema features some of the most inspired and influential of works of the silent era. UN CHIEN ANDALOU (Luis Buñuel, France 1929, 16 min.), Buñuel's collaboration with Dali, is the quintessential surrealist film; BALLET MÉCANIQUE (Fernand Léger, France 1924, 19 min.) unleashes a formalist barrage of images by the famous cubist painter; and THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER (James Sibley Watson, Jr., US 1928, 13 min.) uses sophisticated, expressionistic optical effects to tell Poe's gothic tale. THE LIFE AND DEATH OF 9314: A HOLLYWOOD EXTRA (Robert Florey, US 1928, 13 min.) makes a satirical, absurdist story out of its titular nobody.
