21 AVANT GARDE FILM MAKERS (1961) Poster$450.00
Vintage original 14 x 10″ (36 x 25 cm.) poster, two-color letterpress, USA. Some light offsetting at the top portion, tiny stain at the bottom edge, a couple of short closed tears. Very good+.
Very scarce poster documenting an event held at The Living Theatre (and curated by Cinema 16) showcasing short films by 21 avant-garde filmmakers.
A seminal event, held just as the phenomenon of what was later to be called underground cinema was beginning to emerge. Featured at the screening were works by both American and foreign directors, including Georges Franju, Malcolm McClaren, Agnes Varda, La Monte Young, Stan Brakhage, Jack Smith, Willard Maas, James Broughton and many others.
