Point well taken, Chuck. Carolyn Leaf and Sara Petty are of course US. I would love to see more non-American work.

  One rather obvious reason the animators Gene mentions are probably not being shown is that they are US makers (or with Nelson someone who has done much work in the US) and they probably do not have prints readily available in the UK. This raises an important cross-national question about the "canon" of work. Most US folks interested in experimental film have seen very little work from the UK, from Latin America, from Germany and Austria, Japan, and so forth (even Canada). Those works which are known and easily available in the US tend to be from people who lived in, worked in, or frequently visited the US, such as Kubelka, Michael Snow, etc. To turn the tables, how many of the works being shown at Hull are easily available for a US program or classroom?

    Rob,
    I happen to be obsessed with animation at the moment, and while your program is admirable and welcome, it leaves me wondering why so many visionary women animators are not included -- Suzan Pitt, Martha Colburn, Gunvor Nelson, Joanna Priestly to name but a few (there are scores more; I'm doing this spontaneously with no time to think about it). Not to criticize your project so much as to encourage a more comprehensive survey. The future of the moving image, after all, is animation and appropriation.
