UNSEEN CINEMA features for the first time Fernand Lger and American Dudley Murphy's abstract film Ballet mcanique (1924) synchronized to George Antheil's original avant-garde music scored for 16 player pianos,
percussions, sirens, bells, and an airplane propeller; Elizabeth Woodman Wright's eloquent home-movies; and Joseph Cornell's enigmatic collage films. Many, many, many other surprises await the viewer of Image's DVD anthology of avant-garde films.
