REVOIR and The Film-makers' Cooperative collaboration

RE:VOIR is excited to be working closely with The Film-makers' Cooperative in New York City on a collection of DVD releases.  These releases will feature work from filmmakers from the Cooperative's catalog, many of whom have yet to have their films published on DVD.  Two titles from this collection have already been released.

The first release is from the filmmaker MM Serra, who whose tireless efforts as director of the Cooperative alongside the rest of her team have for the last 30 years kept their organization a vibrant source of exchange and diffusion of experimental cinema works around the world.  (ART)core features 15 of MM's video and film works, which deal with a variety of themes including LGBTQ+ issues, portraits of artists, marginal figures "marked by a lush sensuality, a concern for light, (and) play..." (Barbara Hammer).

The next release in this series is a collection of 15 films by the artist and poet Storm de Hirsch.  Mythology of the Soul includes a large collection of the artist's work on Super 8 and 16mm from the 1960s.

"A further exploration into the color of ritual, the color of thought; a journey through the underworld of sensory derangement. A very beautiful work! The abstractions drawn directly on film are like the paintings of Miro; moving at full speed to the rhythm of an African beat."
-Dominique Noguez

"Elegant yet rustic in its simplicity of execution, Barn Rushes is tugged gently toward different sides of the set by hints of color and motion interactions, positive and negative spaces and the unyielding delivery on one of the great apotheoses of poetic cinema at fade-out time."
-Tony Conrad
