Moderna Museet, 1980
“Through the efforts of three generations of independent, avant-garde, non-commercial film-makers, cinema has become capable of expressing the full scale of human experience—the tragic experience of the world on one hand, and the most subtle, lyrical imagery, abstractions, pure motion, pure vision, pure thought, pure film medium on the other.”
Illustrated with 70 black-and-white stills from films produced during the forty-year period, 1939 to 1979. In Swedish and English.
