Three clips from the Yorkshire Film Archive in the UK.
& a glimpse of some lost worlds.
It’s a crime more of these films are not digitised & available
for immediate view & that the online documentation is so poor.
Makes one doubly thankful for the wonderful Prelinger Archive…
Isaac Julien is one of Britain’s most innovative and provocative filmmakers.
He has been involved with forging a new language around black representation.
Although his works largely retain a conventional narrative approach, they are shot
through with strategies which then serve to disrupt the stability of this narrative.
Above – Encore II from tank.tv.
Four recent Chinese shorts featured on the
(rather confusingly organised) theoneminutes.org site.
(Which site also boasts the rather alarming archive
category: science and miracles).
The site’s quality control is a bit variable,
however these four are great – despite image
quality not being brilliant, their sparkiness &
originality sing through.
