Tim Cawkwell's Cinema

Intelligible writing on intelligent film

STAN BRAKHAGE AND THE MELIES WAY

This essay forms chapter 9 of my digital book 'Film Past Film Future' which was published in 2011. It situates Brakhage's aesthetics in those of the American underground/avant-garde film, with particular reference to Warhol, Snow and Frampton. It is particularly aimed at those coming to Brakhage's work for the first time.
