Spiegelman and Experimental Film

March 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

In yesterday’s post, I talked about Art Spiegelman’s appearances in movies by George Kuchar, but I should’ve mentioned that Spiegelman’s own connections to avant-garde film go beyond being a Kuchar “star.” Spiegelman’s had a decades-long friendship with optic pioneer Ken Jacobs—go here for an abridged dialogue between Spiegelman and Jacobs on the Family blog—and he was also a contributor to The Cinemanews, the newsletter of experimental film distributor Canyon Cinema.

Four pages from Spiegelman’s sketchbooks that originally appeared in the November-December 1977 issue of The Cinemanews are reprinted in Scott MacDonald’s Canyon Cinema: The Life and Times of an Independent Film Distributor (University of California Press, 2008).
