The 1960s and 1970s were groundbreaking decades in which independent
filmmakers challenged cinematic convention. The London Film Makers'
Co-operative was established in 1966 to support work on the margins of art
Malcolm Le Grice, Guy Sherwin, and William Raban were among the founders of
the movement that developed around the London Film makers' Co-operative.
Taking a visual-arts approach to film, they proposed new forms of cinema,
producing works marked by formal rigour and great delicacy of technique.
Instead of the traditional cinema presentation, they combined several
projectors, made use of unusual surfaces in place of screens, and
incorporated elements of live performance in their work - making each
screening a unique experience that required the presence of the director.
Recently rediscovered in the context of various festivals (IFFR Rotterdam,
Kill Your Timid Notion festival Dundee, European Media Art Festival
Osnabrück, Light Cone screenings in Paris), this work has maintained its
visual impact and is now seen as pioneering; it is attracting considerable
attention at a time when the links between cinema and the visual arts are
becoming ever closer.
