Peter Gidal - The Author as Producer of Nothing
|Sezgin Boynik ed.
The book includes the first publication of Peter Gidal's text from 1978, with a new introduction. Gidal in this dense theoretical essay deals with the limits of language and representation in the practice of experimental filmmaking and writing. Gidal's lost text The Author as Producer of Nothing will give a new insight into the theoretical and political context to experimental film practices. The afterword by Sezgin Boynik discusses in detail the political contradictions of Gidal's filmic non-objectivity.
