HASH(0xa6c97054) out of 5 stars Excellent Book April 17 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am not quite finished reading this book yet. It is however, an excellent resource on the history of experimental film and video. I am particularly fond of the condensed, yet rich account of the development of film as an medium of art. I am extremely happy with this purchase...
