Das Interesse der Bewegung am Alltag und an den Menschen, die am Rand der Gesellschaft leben, hat durchaus auch einen sozialpolitischen Hintergrund. Die jungen amerikanischen Filmemacher sind vielseitig und flexibel. John Canciani. Independent Cinema USA Since the dawn of cinema history, American films have played a leading role in the development of the global film and cinema industries.
Harry Davis founded the first Nickelodeon, a stationary cinema, in Pittsburgh in After just one year, more than 2, Nickelodeons had sprung up all over the United States — the key ingredient for the success of cinemas and film production in the United States had been established. In the s, Hollywood developed into the centre of the film industry, and the studio system came into being with the Majors that are still known today: Metro-GoldwynMayer, Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia.
But this was soon followed by an urge to establish the film medium as an independent art form in a countermovement to Hollywood's entertainment machine. The surrealists were important pioneers in this field: soon, the Avant-garde movement — which had been around even before Hollywood — established itself, and thereby gave birth to the independent cinema of the United States. Even though these films were a part of the studio system, it was no longer the producers but the directors who held the reins, and they acted in the spirit of independent cinema by looking for new financing opportunities, negotiating with unions, choosing new avenues of distribution and exhibition, and standing up to censorship and predefined, risk-free ideas.
Classic narrative patterns were disrupted, anti-heroes became the new heroes, and the free spirit of the 68 generation could be felt. One of the most striking aspects was the free depiction of sex and violence, which had previously been an absolute taboo topic in Hollywood after all, the Hays Code, which established guidelines for the morally justifiable depiction of sex and violence in. American films, was only abolished completely in American society was suddenly questioned in a critical light.
The Avant-garde kept producing works in the wake of this wave, like it had always done. No-budget productions and exploitation films by directors such as John Waters or George A. Romero and independent producers such as Roger Corman American International Pictures satisfied the audience's desire for sensation, sex and violence.
With their unpredictable success at the box offices, the two films by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg showed the studios new ways to make enormous amounts of money. The movement's interest in everyday life and in the people living on the margins of society definitely has a socio-political background. They are all a cinema of protest, a cinema of outcry.
Young directors were celebrated at festivals all over the world, and found their way to the big cinema theatres. Festivals such as Sundance co-founded by Robert Redford , South by Southwest Austin, Texas and Ann Arbor have supported this scene over the years, and are still seen as the talent factories of American cinema.
The young American filmmakers are versatile and flexible. They skilfully switch between features and short films, make commercials or music videos, and write for TV series. Indie filmmakers are no longer dependent on having big studios supporting them in order to finance their productions — filmmaking has become easier in line with technology becoming cheaper.
Independent Cinema USA: Stuck in Suburbia With the economic boom of the post-war era, housing estates sprung up on the peripheries of large cities. The middle class wanted privately owned homes, independence and, above all, a touch of luxury, and the suburbs offered these opportunities. A decisive factor for the growth of the suburb was the mobility of society and, especially in America, the pride of the nation: the obligatory automobile.

- Cruise of the Dolphin.
In some metropolitan areas, these settlements also emerged for racial reasons: the white middle class wanted to distance itself from the black working population, a good example being Detroit. What suburbia means for each individual person can therefore hardly be reduced to a common denominator. What once had a positive connotation, is today pervaded by negative aspects that are the result of social decay, such as growing poverty, unemployment and degeneration. What once stood for economic upturn is now crumbling, and the young generation is moving back to the centres as a result.
What remains is merely a patina. This programme does not deal with the structures, but with the feelings and atmospheres of today's suburbia — and with what's left of it. It is defined by the remains of Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged New Orleans in New Orleans nach dem Sturm. New Orleans after the storm.

Independent Cinema USA: In the Middle of Nowhere Even many Americans have only seen the so-called Flyover States from a distance of 30, feet: located between the densely populated coastal regions, they are mostly flown over, but never visited.

Immer wieder die Bilder, immer wieder die Kommentatoren, immer wieder die Ratlosigkeit. Amerika war getroffen. Mitten ins Herz. The unthinkable happens, and the world looks on: the TV footage that shows the iconic buildings collapse still manages to set our teeth on edge. Again and again, we see the pictures; again and again we hear the commentaries; again and again we experience helplessness.
America was heartstruck. Terms such as axis of evil, al Qaeda, Guantanamo, Ground Zero, collateral damage, new world order, Osama Bin Laden, Patriot Act, support your troops or water boarding had suddenly entered into everyday language.

He has currently decided to dedicate himself to documentary projects. Tiziana Pelusi. This programme focuses on socially critical and political documentaries, avant-garde underground works, concept films and performance videos, which all deal with American society, its minorities and its living environments.
How do American filmmakers and video artists view their reference groups? How do norms, traditions and pop culture influence their works? How does American society create its own space, and how do communities share this space among themselves to construct recognisable social identities?
When is one's living environment a protection zone, and when is it a gilded cage? And what happened during the Occupy protest movement on New York's public grounds? The programme makes an apolitical start with a work by Kenneth Anger, the forefather of Pop Art and the last survivor of early American avant-garde cinema. This is followed by two films on the subject of Black Community, which reveal the social exclusion that takes place as a result of the retreat into racially separated neighbourhoods — and beauty contests.
In today's American cinema, very few productions can be seen as direct political statements — let alone as agitprop — except maybe when it comes to identity-building. Using found footage and pop songs from the early s, Anger portrays a gang of young bikers and their leader. They lovingly repair their bikes, strike lewd poses, desecrate a church and enjoy themselves at motorbike races. At eleven, he started making films.
Already then his works had the fast pace of editing, which would later have a seminal influence on his music videos and commercials.

At the same time, the slacker has no ambitions in terms of rising up the society ladder or nurturing a career. In positive terms, one could describe him as a rebel against achievement-oriented society. The artist John Baldessari might not be a slacker, but he is without doubt a rebel.
The animator Don Hertzfeld presents his persona in quite a similar way. Christensen himself plays the amiable outsider Richie, who is given one last chance to whitewash his image as a loser.

Und sollte mir das, was ich da sehe, eigentlich nicht auch Sorgen machen? Sie werden sehen Laura Walde und Dennis Nyback. It has been used to control and paralyse large segments of the population for increasingly political purposes. Paramount in that campaign has been the fear of Communism and Socialism. During most of the first half of the twentieth century, Socialism was more of a political party than a pariah.
That era of amity ended with the atomic bomb. Political careers were made by attacking Communism and, on the other hand, careers were ruined and people were jailed for having been, or claimed to have been, members of the Communist party. To this day and long after the fall of the Soviet Union, the fear of Communism is a driving force in United States politics.
Just like Martin Luther King Jr. Can fear paralyse? Congress has repeatedly failed to pass a budget for the next fiscal year.

Today, his archive contains more than 13, titles collected from all over the world, with which he tours the United States and international festivals to present his found-footage programmes in person. In the light of various surveillance scandals, the war on terrorism, or the omnipresence of the health- and beauty-craze in mass media, a latent sense of paranoia has endured in a society in which one is still constantly surrounded by potentially frightful and uncontrollable systems.

And does the person sitting next to me see it as well? Laura Walde and Dennis Nyback. Surely a cartoon that could not have been marketed during the Cold War. Eerie silent footage of the moments before an atomic bomb fires. This film starts with an Atomic Bomb blast and shows early footage of the Vietnam War.

She has won numerous awards and her work is shown internationally. She lives and works in Chicago. Charaktere aus den er Jahren werden zu Protagonisten einer Geheimoperation. Figures from the s are recast in a large-scale secret operation.

Cynthia Madansky is a New York-based artist and filmmaker. Angelika Brudniak is a Vienna-born artist. Bis jetzt. For more than 20 years, Charles Manson has refused to communicate directly with the outside world. Until now.

Eines von Angers simpelsten, aber beeindruckendsten Werken. Die Frage nach Sinn oder Handlung ist irrelevant. As the actors pose in harem costumes and bizarre makeup, Rice explores the allure of indolent women and swaying hammocks stretching out the experience through colourful in-camera superimpositions. The psychedelic montage moves at a languorous pace far removed from the rush of modern life.

In diesem Werk oszillieren kleine Kreise in einem Spektrum von Farben, ganz wie bei einem Kaleidoskop. Dazu spielt indische Sitar-Musik. Die Muster entfalten ihre hypnotische Wirkung. In this piece smaller circles oscillate in and out in an array of colours resembling a kaleidoscope while being accompanied by Indian sitar music. The patterns become hypnotic and trance-inducing. This work clearly correlates the auditory and the visual and is a wonderful example of the concept of synaesthesia.
