Re: Steel Films
Beam Drop by Michael Rudnick documents an installation in New York by Chris Burden. Steel beams falling into wet concrete.
I've always enjoyed the "films about..." challenges and their
responses. I've got one now. I'm starting a project on the spectacles
of steel working in film - the mills, furnaces, ingots, slag etc.
I have a pretty good sense of some canonical examples: Industrial
Britain, Iven's Komosol, Vertov's Enthusiasm - but I'm sure there's
wonderful experimental films/documentaries that I don't know.
Mainstream films are helpful too, but I've got T2.
Thanks so much,
