    Book details


This comprehensive historical account demonstrates the rich diversity in 1970s British experimental filmmaking, acting as a form of reclamation for films and filmmakers marginalized within established histories. An indispensable book for practitioners, historians and critics alike, it provides new interpretations of this rich and diverse history.

"Patti Gaal-Holmes's book offers a comprehensive, informative and readable survey of the creative innovations of experimental filmmakers working in Britain in the 1970s which places their work in key historical, political and socio-cultural contexts. What is particularly impressive here is the balance between Gaal-Holmes's passionate love of experimental film as an artist/filmmaker and her scholarly attention to detail." - Paul Newland, Aberystwyth University, UK

Review Text

  • By Kay Hamilton on 27 April 2015

    Unlike the previous reviewer, I actually have read the book and found it to be a thorough, conscientious, and enlightening critique of the until now "official history" of '70s experimental film, which until now has been treated as gospel. However, unlike the previous reviewer, I don't have a vested interest in attempting to demolish any other schools of thought, nor did I view Dr Gaal-Holmes' research as some attack on Structural Materialism. Well worth the effort to actually read for both newcomers to the field and old hats.
