In the latter half of the 20th Century, Raymond Rohauer was one of the nation’s foremost proponents of experimental cinema. This two-disc collection continues Kino’s tribute to the Rohauer Collection, including the early works of Stan Brakhage and influential films by Willard Maas, Gregory Markapoulos, Marie Menken, Dimitri Kirsanoff, Jean Mitry, Sidney Peterson and others. The piece de resistance is Jean Isidore Isou’s passionate manifesto of film aesthetics Traite de bave et d’eternite (Venom and Eternity), which sparked a riot when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 1951. This edition of Venom includes 34 minutes of footage never seen in the United States.
