Essential Brakhage: Selected Writings on Filmmaking

Author/Editor: Stan Brakhage, Bruce R. McPherson


CONTENTS

In the course of making nearly 400 films over the past 50 years, Stan Brakhage became synonymous with independent American filmmaking, particularly its avant-garde component. This major collection of writings draws primarily upon two long out-of-print books—Metaphors on Vision (1963) and Brakhage Scrapbook Collected Writings, 1964-1980 (pub. 1982) and includes the full text of A Moving Picture Giving and Taking Book (1971). Brakhage examines filmmaking in relation to social and professional contexts, the nature of influence and collaboration, the aesthetics of personal experience and the conditions under which various films were made. Brakhage discusses his predecessors and contemporaries, relates film to dance and poetry and in A Moving Picture Giving and Taking Book provides a manual for the novice filmmaker. Lectures, interviews, essays, and manifestos document Brakhage’s personal vision and public persona.
