Malcolm Le Grice - Volume One
Born in Plymouth in 1940, Malcolm LeGrice is probably the most influential modernist filmmaker in British cinema. LeGrice’s work has explored the complex relationships between the filmmaking, projecting and viewing processes which constitute cinema as a medium, and shows an intense interest in the processes enabled by optical printers and by the combination of different types and gauges of film stock. He has been making work since the mid-1960s which has continued to be exhibited internationally, including recent screenings at both Tate Modern and Tate Britain. He is currently a professor at the University of the Arts London, and is the author of several books including Experimental Cinema in the Digital Age (2001). This DVD includes five of his most important early works: LITTLE DOG FOR ROGER-1967, BERLIN HORSE-1970, THRESHOLD-1972, WHITCHURCH DOWN (DURATION)-1972 and AFTER LUMIERE – L’ARROSEUR ARROSÉ-1974.
