VISIONS OF AVANT-GARDE FILM: POLISH CINEMATIC EXPERIMENTS FROM EXPRESSIONISM TO CONSTRUCTIVISM. Kamila Kuc. Indiana University Press, Bloomington, 2016. 272 pp. with 20 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780253024022 In English.
Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 175256. Publisher's description: Warsaw- and London-based filmmakers Franciszka and Stefan Themerson are often recognized internationally as pioneers of the 1930s Polish avant-garde. Yet, from the turn of the century to the end of the 1920s, Poland's literary and art scenes were also producing a rich array of criticism and early experiments with the moving image that set the stage for later developments in the avant-garde. In this comprehensive and accessible study, Kamila Kuc draws on myriad undiscovered archival sources to tell the history of early Polish avant-garde movements -- Symbolism, Expressionism, Futurism, and Constructivism -- and to reveal their impact on later practices in art cinema.
