THE FIRST DECADE OF THE LONDON FILM-MAKERS' CO-OPERATIVE 1966-76
Annabel Nicolson’s Slides open the session: a real film collage made up of slides, strips of 8mm and 16mm and blurred and sewn film; Marilyn Halford questions the relationship between performer and camera, negative and positive, in steps filled with suspense; Berlin Horse is an explosion of hypnotic colour from Malcolm Le Grice (with music by Brian Eno) and one of the most emblematic pieces from the Co-op; Dresden Dynamo is Lis Rhodes’ response to visual music and rhythmic abstraction; Anne Rees-Mogg picks up the pioneer experiments in chronophotography in playful ways in her Muybridge Film; David Crosswaite’s Film No.1 delights in the idea of the loop, rhythm and superimposition; Raban and Welsby’s films, meanwhile, exploit cinema’s ability to compress and synthesise time, through landscape, light and colour; the final piece is Associations, by John Smith, an ingenious game with associations between word and image, full of humour and intention.
