WATCH: Hollis - Miguel Rodríguez
This essay - from Miguel Rodríguez - examines the visual similitudes, double strategies and tropes in Hollis Frampton’s filmography. Known for his oblique references—from Ezra Pound’s poems to mathematical syllogisms—the filmmaker interrogates some of the multiple possibilities that cinema might have developed in the past and that became entangled in narrative logic. His most celebrated works are frequently seen as singularities rather than the sums of a whole. Hollis seeks to pair up its own images in order to show his coherence as a filmmaker, as well as initiating those who might not be familiar with his work.
