THE FIRST DECADE OF THE LONDON FILM-MAKERS’ CO-OPERATIVE 1966-76
The session opens with Guy Sherwin’s experiments with academy leader, and then gives free rein to play and experimentation; Peter Gidal plays with focus and repetition in Focus; Mike Legget gives us a real trip from darkness to light in his sensorial Shepherd's Bush; Jeff Keen offers an account of the debauchery in ‘60s London and of pop culture in his Marvo Movie; Mike Dunford questions everything we take for granted in cinema with a humorous approach, starting with image focus in Lens Tissue; Jenny Okun’s Still Life converts the colour of the negative into positive as if by magic; in Deck, Gill Eatherley uses the filming of the deck of a ship to exploit all the material possibilities of a strip of celluloid; and, finally, in Windowframe Roger Hewins plays with the window that is the cinema screen, decomposing and recomposing it in infinite ways.
