Le Vol d'Icare (1974)
Schwizgebel's pioneering animation looks more at home today than it ever did in the early 1970s.
Expanded Cinema is a new blog by the curator Joao Ribas:
"I've received quite a few emails asking why I haven't curated something online, particularly in terms of culling film and media, and things that are hard to incorporate into more 'conventional' exhibition formats. I've taken the suggestion seriously and decided to launch this online platform for just that, Expanded Cinema. I'll be posting some material here every few days, along with guest curators, as part of a series focused mainly on experimental film, early video, and sound-based, durational work. All of the material is being pulled from available media online elsewhere, as part of emphasizing an overlooked facet of the archival function of new media."
