Since the late 1950s Stan Brakhage has been in the forefront of independent filmmaking. His body of work ? some seventy hours ? is one of the largest of any filmmaker in the history of cinema, and one of the most diverse. Probably the most widely quoted experimental filmmaker in history, his films typify the independent cinema.
Until now, despite well-deserved acclaim, there has been no comprehensive study of Brakhage?s oeuvre. The Films of Stan Brakhage in the American Tradition fills this void. R. Bruce Elder delineates the aesthetic parallels between Brakhage?s films and a broad spectrum of American art from the 1920s through the 1960s.
This book is certain to stir the passions of those interested in artistic critique and interpretation in its broadest terms.
Filmmaker, author and critic, R. Bruce Elder inspires and enjoys debate. His films have been exhibited internationally and his polemical piece, ?The Cinema We Need?, remains one of the most discussed pieces of writing on Canadian film. Elder has also produced a forty-two-hour film cycle entitled The Book of All the Dead. In 2007, R. Bruce Elder received the Governor General?s Award in Visual and Media Arts.
