We are delighted to welcome Daniel Fitzpatrick, Aoife Desmond, Alan Lambert and Alice Butler of EFC for a discussion on Zorns Lemma as well as looking at EFC’s legacy to date and its possible futures.
“Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws of perspective, an eye unprejudiced by compositional logic, an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which must know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception” – Stan Brakhage.
To mark their 50th programme, the Experimental Film Club highlight the work of Hollis Frampton. Frampton remains a highly influential figure in terms of both his filmmaking and his writings and Zorns Lemma (1970) is a truly seminal work. As Brakhage once noted, Frampton “strains cinema through language” and by doing so radically expands our understanding of cinema and its potential. (Notes by Daniel Fitzpatrick.)
