Publisher's description: During his lifetime, Robert Gardner (1925 2014) was often pigeonholed as an ethnographic filmmaker, then criticized for failing to conform to the genre s conventions conventions he radically challenged. With the release of his groundbreaking film "Dead Birds" in 1963, Gardner established himself as one of the world s most extraordinary independent filmmakers, working in a unique border area between ethnography, the essay film, and poetic/experimental cinema. Richly illustrated, "Looking with Robert Gardner" assesses the range and magnitude of Gardner s achievements not only as a filmmaker but also as a still photographer, writer, educator, and champion of independent cinema. The contributors give critical attention to Gardner s most ambitious films, such as "Dead Birds" (1963, New Guinea), "Rivers of Sand" (1975, Ethiopia), and "Forest of Bliss" (1986, India), as well as lesser-known films that equally exemplify his mode of seeking anthropological understanding through artistic means.
