How does contemporary experimental cinema respond to the challenges of the digital age? Four acclaimed European filmmakers present their answers. As movie archaeologists, demolition experts, and visual poets, each has transformed familiar genres—Hollywood westerns and melodramas, political documentaries, early cinema, and abstract films—to create hyperfilmic works that redefine cinema. Their investigations transform our common history of visual imagery, music, sound, and signs as well as the way we receive culture through moving images.
