Patricia R. Zimmermann, author of States of Emergency: Documentaries, Wars, Democracy A compelling achievement, Avant-Doc diagrams a new fluid geography of cinema, where traditional categories such as experimental, "documentary," and "fiction" dissolve. The insightful, probing conversations assembled so deftly here vaporize fixed cinematic modes. These filmmakers describe cinema as a living organism, pulsating in networks of politics, arts, philosophies, teachers, literature, communities, technologies, and aesthetics.

J.J. Murphy, author of The Black Hole of the Camera: The Films of Andy Warhol Scott MacDonald's groundbreaking and seminal new volume, Avant-Doc, illuminates correspondences between avant-garde cinema and documentary through a series of compelling interviews with major independent filmmakers and noted scholar Annette Michelson. This intimate and probing follow-up to MacDonald's Critical Cinema series creates a lively and deeply personal oral history. Avant-Doc broadens our understanding of connections between avant-garde and documentary film,
while providing a rich treasure trove of research material that current and future scholars will find invaluable.
