This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Amos Vogel was one of America's most innovative film historians and curators. An emigre from Austria who arrived in New York just before the Second World War, he created Cinema 16, a pioneering film club, in 1947 and helped establish the New York Film Festival in 1963. Vogel later synthesized his experience for students and the wider public, publishing the culmination of his thoughts, along with an extraordinary collection of stills, in a book entitled Film as a Subversive Art. Be Sand, Not Oil is the first book about Vogel's life and work, including uncollected writings, an unpublished interview, and new essays documenting the filmmaker's never-ending quest for what Werner Herzog, his friend of many decades, has described as "adequate imagery."
