(09/03/07) – Tank.tv has put together for streaming a programme of films by London-based moving image artist, John Smith. It includes some of his key works such as The Girl Chewing Gum (1976), Om (1986) and Associations(1975) (pictured).
John Smith started making films in 1972 and became associated with the London Film Makers Co-op. At the height of theory-led, materialist filmmaking, Smith’s work was marked by its humour and accessibility. Playful, idiosyncratic and staunchly rigorous, these films (made over a 32-year period) are an absorbing exploration of questions central to both cinema and experience.
The films will be available for viewing until 15 April.
