Acting as a corrective to the skewed avant-garde history that neglects women, Women and Experimental Filmmaking gathers essays by some of the top scholars in cinema studies dealing with women experimental filmmakers. Tracking the topic across racial, economic, geographic, and even temporal boundaries, Jean Petrolle and Virginia Wexman's selections reflect the deep diversity of methodologies and research. The introduction sets out by addressing the basic difficulties of both historiography and definition before providing a historical overview of how these particular filmmakers have helped shape moviemaking traditions. The essays explore the major theoretical controversies that have arisen around the work of groundbreaking women such as Leslie Thornton, Su Friedrich, Nina Menkes, and Faith Hubley. With the film-makers re-presentations of women's subjectivity ranging across film, video, digital media, ethnography, animation, and collage, Women and Experimental Filmmaking represents the full spectrum of genres, techniques, and modes. Taken together, these essays comprise a sustained analysis of the conjunction of aesthetics and politics in the work of both pioneer and contemporary experimental women filmmakers. Jean Petrolle is professor of English at Columbia College, Chicago, and has published essays in journals including Quarterly Review of Film and Image: A Journal of Art and Religion. Virginia Wexman is professor of English at the University of Illinois, Chicago. She is the author of Creating the Couple: Love, Marriage, and Hollywood Performance and Conversations with Filmmakers: Jane Campion.

From its auspicious beginnings in the summer of 1966 to the present, the Chicago Surrealist Group--and the Surrealist Movement in the United States, which grew out of it--have continued to foment an exhilarating whirlwind of revolt while playfully igniting the sparks of Poetry, Freedom and Love in the crucible of the Unfettered Imagination. In so doing, it has brightly illuminated the pathways of absolute divergence that define the intrinsically anarchist trajectory of the surrealist adventure.Drawing on the full range of U.S. surrealist publications, from the original journal Arsenal/Surrealist Subversion to the very latest millennial communiqué from the front lines of the ongoing battle against miserabilism, this volume contains over 200 texts (more than two dozen appearing here for the first time) by more than fifty participants in the Surrealist Movement, making this the most comprehensive, diverse and lavishly illustrated compilation of American surrealist writings to have ever been assembled.Contributors include: Gale Ahrens, Jennifer Bean, Jen Besemer, Daniel C. Boyer, Paul Buhle, Ronnie Burk, Leonora Carrington, Laura Corsigilia, Jayne Cortez, Guy Ducornet, Rikki Ducornet, Schlechter Duvall, Alice Farley, J. Allen Fees, Beth Garon, Paul Garon, Eugenio F.

Penelope Rosemont's first book of articles and essays. It includes nearly two dozen texts originally published in surrealist journals from 1970 through the 90s, plus eleven that appear here for the first time. An ardent defender of all that is most liberating in the revolutionary tradition - from Robin Hood to the L A Rebellion - Rosemont is also a passionate defender of love, wilderness, and the poetic life. In these writings, critical theory embraces the 'language of birds'; poetic humor reveals the open secrets of revolutionary thought at its wildest and brightest; work and its ideological pillars - white supremacy, sexism and miserabilism is exposed; 'lost voices' (Geoge Francis Train, Mary MacLane and others) are retrieved; and the impact on surrealism of such writers as Nancy Cunard and Ten Joans is discussed. Not to mention the revolutionary significance of a fairy tale, the importance of play, the affinities of alchemy and anarchy, poetry in the comics, and the future of surrealism. Includes a foreword by Rikki Ducornet.
