Independent Film

Independent Film

There have been independent film-makers for as long as film has existed; the very first film-makers—Georges Méliès, the Lumière brothers, Émile Reynaud—are the direct ancestors of the postwar avant-garde, from Jack Smith to Jean-Luc Godard. Hollywood’s studios continue to decide what plays at today’s multiplexes, but renegade venues for independent film continue to exist, and with increasingly affordable equipment the phenomenon thrives as never before. This selection of classic monographs and writings by and on the finest independent film-makers of the past 60 years ranges from documentary film-makers to that small clutch of feature-film directors who have consistently held Hollywood at bay.

Featured image is a still from Jack Smith's controversial 1963 masterpiece Flaming Creatures.
