This book brings together authors, filmmakers, curators, critics, theorists, art historians, collaborators, and Stephen Dwoskin's film lovers, invited to parse the American filmmaker's work.
Steve Dwoskin was born in 1939 in Brooklyn, New York City. He contracted polio at the age of 9 and was left disabled. After studying art (under professors de Kooning and Albers), he attended New York University and the Parsons School of Design, and was a regular in Greenwich Village with the likes of Andy Warhol, Allen Ginsberg, and Robert Frank. His first film, Asleep, was awarded a prize at the Venice Biennale. In 1964 he settled in Great Britain where he became the driving force behind an independent cinema movement (the London Film-Makers' Cooperative). In the 1970s, he directed feature films which made him known outside the experimental movement and attracted support from cultural television stations and institutions (particularly Germany's ZDF). After working for a time on subjective documentaries on artists such as photographer Bill Brandt or the Ballet Nègre company, his film-making became increasingly introspective as his mobility diminished. He died in June 2012.
