Special Citation: Unseen Cinema
Bruce Posner, David Shepard and Anthology Film Archives
 
Remarks by Robert Koehler published in program booklet:
 
It isn't often that a film, let alone a DVD release, can be said to rewrite history, but that's the case with the new seven-disc box set, "Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant-Garde Film 1894-1941." The sheer mass alone—155 films, eighteen-plus hours—plus the curatorial collaboration between 60 film archive collections coordinated by the Anthology Film Archives, curator Bruce Posner and producer/preservationist David Shepard, places this project in extremely rarefied air. But what makes Unseen Cinema essential for any serious film lover is the argument it makes: That long before the post-war period of Maya Deren, Stan Brakhage and Jonas Mekas, Americans were experimenting with film form and subject matter. This runs against received wisdom, which insists that a true American avant-garde in film, as in painting, didn't exist before World War II. Posner and company have compiled enough contrary evidence to shatter this notion. Consider this set's collection of wild dance films shot in Thomas A. Edison's studio in the 1890s; Jerome Hill's mind-blowing La Cartomancienne ; Orson Welles's first actual film, Hearts of Age , that foreshadows all of his subsequent work; abstract films such as Ralph Steiner's H20 , and the visually rhythmic projects of Mary Ellen Bute, Douglas Crockwell and Dwinell Grant; or radical narrative experiments like Boris Deutsch's Lullaby and David Bradley's Sredni Vashtar. There's no more transparently false idea in film criticism than the notion that everything in cinema has been seen and written about—that there are no new discoveries.  Unseen Cinema deliciously, deliriously puts a firm stop to this falsehood.
