9780817351601: This Is Called Moving: A Critical Poetics of Film (Modern & Contemporary Poetics)

As the writer, director, producer, and cinematographer of almost all her 30 films, videos, and shorts, Abigail Child has been recognized as a major and influential practitioner of experimental cinema since the early 1970s. Hallmarks of her style are the appropriation and reassembly of found footage and fragments from disparate visual sources, ranging from industrial films and documentaries to home movies, vacation photography, and snippets of old B movies. The resulting collages and montages are cinematic narratives that have been consistently praised for their beauty and sense of wonder and delight in the purely visual. At the same time, Child's films are noted for their incisive political commentary on issues such as gender and sexuality, class, voyeurism, poverty, and the subversive nature of propaganda. In the essays of This Is Called Moving, Child draws on her long career as a practicing poet as well as a filmmaker to explore how these two language systems inform and cross-fertilize her work. examining the parallels between them - words and frames, lines and shots, stanzas and scenes - she discovers how the two art forms re-construct and re-present social meaning, both private and collective.

About the Author :

Abigail Child's moving Images always contain elements of humor, liveliness and complex sound/image montage. In the words of La Weekly, she makes "brilliant exciting work... a vibrant political filmmaking that's attentive to form." Child's previous work explores sexuality, focusing on radical strategies to rewrite narrative, and includes the cult classics Mayhem (1987) and Covert Action (1984). Her feature documentary On the Downlow (2007) goes further in its intimate look at an underground scene. An earlier short on this topic, The Party (2005) was featured at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2007. Child is a reciplent of Guggenheim, Fulbright, and Radcliffe Institute Fellowships and has shown her films nationally and internationally. Her work is in the permanent collection of MoMa, New York and Centre Pompidou, Paris, among others.

Tom Gunning is professor in the Department of Art History and the Department of Cinema and Media Studies at the University of Chicago.

Review :

"An excellent and distinctive addition to the MCP series. . . . This book focuses a highly articulate poetic intelligence on a range of topics relevant to film studies and literary writing, and at the same time presents a portfolio of interviews and discussion and script material that charts the trajectory of a significant contemporary experimental filmmaker."--Bruce Andrews, author of Paradise and Method: Poetry and Praxis
