In the latter half of the 20th Century, Raymond Rohauer was one of the nationĂs foremost proponents of experimental cinema. This two-disc collection continues KinoĂs tribute to the Rohauer Collection, including the early works of Stan Brakhage and influential films by Willard Maas, Gregory Markopoulos, Marie Menken, Dimitri Kirsanoff, Jean Mitry, Sidney Peterson and others. The piFce de rTsistance is Jean Isidore IsouĂs passionate manifesto of film aesthetics TraitT de Bave et DĂeternitT (Venom and Eternity), which sparked a riot when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 1951. This edition of Venom includes 34 minutes of footage never seen in the United States.
