Ernst Schmidt Jr. - Stones & 20 Action and Destruction Films

Ernst Schmidt Jr. died in 1988 at the early age of 50,  leaving behind a multifarious body of work: experimental documentary films, material films, expanded cinema, abstract films, project films, conceptual films, Lettrist text films, compilation films, and a feature length dramatic film.  In 1980 Schmidt Jr. made a compilation of films entitled 20 Aktions- und Destruktionsfilme 1965-1979. This compilation is now available for the first time on DVD.

“If I had to name a single Austrian filmmaker who to this day has not received the international recognition deserved for the artistic level his work attained, I would unhesitatingly name him.” (Peter Tscherkassky).
