Details

Critics hailed previous editions of Visionary Film as the most complete work written on the exciting, often puzzling, and always controversial genre of American avant-garde film. This book has remained the standard text on American avant-garde film since the publication of its first edition in 1974. Now P. Adams Sitney has once again revised and updated this classic work, restoring a chapter on the films of Gregory J. Markopoulos and bringing his discussion of the principal genres and major filmmakers up to the year 2000.

Table of Contents

1. Meshes of the Afternoon
2. Ritual and Nature
3. The Potted Psalm
4. The Magus
5. From Trance to Myth
6. The Lyrical Film
7. Major Mythopoeia
8. Absolute Animation
9. The Graphic Cinema: European Perspectives
10. Apocalypses and Picaresques
11. Recovered Innocence
