[modest edgewear and external rubbing, creasing and fading to spine]. (B&W photographs) A triple issue (288 pages), with three themes/topics: Interviews; Rediscoveries; Third World. The interviews, which take up almost half the issue, are with: filmmaker Hollis Frampton (specifically about his film cycle MAGELLAN); actor/director Eric Mitchell; filmmaker/dancer Yvonne Rainer (focusing on her film JOURNEYS FROM BERLIN; critic Annette Michelson (talking about the acting in Rainer's JOURNEYS FROM BERLIN; filmmaker Jackie Raynal; and performance artist/filmmaker Carolee Schneemann. The "Rediscoveries" and "Third World" selections (somewhat mixed together) include articles on: the work of Charles Dekeukeleire, a Belgian experimental filmmaker from the late 1920s; the 1930 film BORDERLINE, an avant-garde drama produced in Switzerland which starred Paul Robeson and the British poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle); Luis Buuel'S LAS HURDES (LAND WITHOUT BREAD) (1933); discussions of LA HORA DE LOS HORNOS (HOUR OF THE FURNACES), a 1968 Latin American film directed by Octavio Getino and Fernando Solanas; Sembene Ousmane's XALA (1974); and SIGMUND FREUD'S DORA: A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY (1979); an article entitled "Language and Cinema: Preliminary Notes For a Theory of Verbal Images," by Noel Carroll; "Canvassing the Midwest," a look at several films by James Benning; a report on the Media Arts scene in Philadelphia; short discussions/analyses of various films by Stan Brakhage, Susan Pitt, John Knecht, Bruce Conner, Ken Kobland, Dana Gordon, Leandro Katz, and Vincent Grenier. And finally, an exchange of testy letters between P. Adams Sitney and the journal's editors. Phew!
