Starring James Fox, Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg, Performance was made by Donald Cammell and Nicholas Roeg in 1968, but not released until 1970. When the studio backers saw the directors cut, they were so shocked by its sexual explicitness and formal radicalism that attempts were made to destroy the negative. Performance really is one of the most extraordinary British films, and arguable the greatest. An almost magical concoction, it melds the worlds of rock music and street violence, reality and fantasy, politics and art.
Having conducted extensive interviews with surviving participants, Colin MacCabe presents in this book the definitive history of the making of Performance as well as a new interpretation of its consummate artistry.

“The idea for this issue arose when we begin working on our film A Border Musical, whose screenplay is also printed here. This film is based on a study of the situation on both sides of the Russian-Norwegian border: we were interested in how a range of differences, which inevitably serve as sources of conflict in border areas, shape the subjectivity of people in daily contact with each other.” (from the Editorial)
Published on the occasion of the Barents Spectacle 2013 in collaboration with Border Aesthetics.

Publication documents the activities of the Center for Audio Visual Studies (CAS) at FAMU in Prague, founded in 2005. Featuring 30 works by the CAS students and alumni as well as texts by the teachers Helena Bendová, Martin Blažíček, Miroslav Petříček, Tomáš Pospiszyl, Eric Rosenzveig and Miloš Vojtěchovský
Publikace CAS: Co to je? není výstavním katalogem ani sborníkem z odborné konference. Pohybuje se někde mezi, podobně jako je mezioborové studium v Centru audiovizuálních studií FAMU. Jádrem publikace jsou dokumentace různorodých projektů dnes už třicítky studentů či absolventů CAS, ale i práce jejich učitelů. Do knihy například přispěl filozof Miroslav Petříček, ale je tu i dystopická sci-fi povídka. Najdeme tu analýzu studentských filmů od filmové historičky Heleny Bendové, ale i dokumentace a anotace samotných děl. Ty se pohybují na široké škále od dokumentárních filmů, interaktivních instalací, on-line projektů, živých performancí po street artové intervence do veřejného prostoru. Z pedagogů CAS do knihy dále přispěli Martin Blažíček, Tomáš Pospiszyl, Eric Rosenzveig a Miloš Vojtěchovský.

“Film programme booklet produced for the London premiere of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis at the Marble Arch Pavilion on March 21, 1927. Not only a list of cast and crew, it includes eleven short pieces on the making of the movie, commentary from the director and cast, and numerous production photographs and film stills, many attractively arranged as modernist collages. One of the most interesting sections shows in parallel columns how a passage of film scenes was adapted from the novel of the same name by Lang’s wife, Thea von Harbou.” (source)

“Metaphors on Vision is a collection of writings on the film and, in particular, on the film as Stan Brakhage sees and makes it. Yet more significantly it is a testament of what makes mythopoeic art. Mythopoeia is the often attempted and seldom achieved result of making a myth new or making a new myth.” (from the Introduction)
