Hi. I recently read Michael O'Pray's “The British Avant-Garde and Art
Cinema from the 1970s to the 1990s” (1996) in which he mentions filmmakers Cerith
Wyn Evans and John Maybury along with Michael Kostiff, Steve Chivers, and
the installation artist Holly Warburton as part of a New Romantic avant-garde
movement in film. I'm very well acquainted with New Romantic music but had
no clue film was a part of it...to whatever extent it was. From O'Pray's
descriptions, it seems there were definite affinities, esp. considering some of
the above moved into music video.
Has anyone seen these films? Thoughts? Who rents them? DVD plans?
