Cinema by Other Means explores avant-garde endeavors to practice the cinema by using the materials and the techniques different from those commonly associated with the cinematographic apparatus. Using examples from both the historical and the post-war avant-garde -- Dada, Surrealism, Letterism, "structural-materialist" film, and more -- Pavle Levi reveals a range of peculiar and imaginative ways in which filmmakers, artists, and writers have pondered and created, performed and transformed, the "movies" with or without directly grounding their work in the materials of film. The study considers artists and theorists from all over Europe --- France, Italy, Soviet Union, Germany, Hungary -- but it particularly foregrounds the context of the Yugoslav avant-garde. Cinema by Other Means offers the English-language reader a thorough explication of an assortment of distinctly Yugoslav artistic phenomena, such as the Zenithist cine-writings of the 1920s, the proto-structural Antifilm movement of the early 1960s, and the "ortho-dialectical" film-poetry of the 1970s.

Pavle Levi is Assistant Professor of Film Studies at Stanford University. He is the author of Disintegration in Frames: Aesthetics and Ideology in the Yugoslav and Post-Yugoslav.
"In 1968, while exhibiting American avant-garde films in Europe, I discovered that the Yugoslavian experimental cinema was at once the most sophisticated and least known in Europe. At long last, it has found its exponent and brilliant exegete in Pavle Levi. Cinema by Other Means is an invaluable contribution to film history."--P. Adams Sitney, Princeton University
