Hollis Frampton Odyssey [Criterion] (BLU)

Hollis Frampton

Currently unavailable


Icon of the American avant-garde Hollis Frampton made rigorous, audacious, brainy, and downright thrilling films, leaving behind a body of work that remains unparalleled. In the 1960s, having started out as a poet and photographer, Frampton became fascinated with the possibilities of 16 mm filmmaking. In such radically playful, visually and sonically arresting works as ~~Surface Tension, Zorns Lemma, (nostalgia), Critical Mass~~, and the enormous, unfinished Magellan cycle (cut short by his death at age forty-eight), Frampton repurposes cinema itself, making it into something by turns literary, mathematical, sculptural, and simply beautiful-and always captivating. This collection of works by the essential artist-the first home video release of its kind-includes twenty-four films, dating from 1966 to 1979.
