Here are some suggestions to get you started:
- No End to Enderby. This book celebrates Director Graham Eatough and artist Stephen Sutcliffe’s ingenious tribute to the great writer Anthony Burgess (author of A Clockwork Orange), exploring issues of artistry, authenticity and posterity in a playful fashion. No End to Enderby reimaged scenes from Burgess’s ‘Enderby’ series of novels refracted through the lens of kitchen sink drama/ television science fiction and Shakespeare adaptations.
- Personae, Margaret Tait. Margaret Tait (1918-1999), filmmaker and poet, is one of Scotland’s most extraordinary talents, and yet she was largely overlooked during her lifetime. Personae is her unpublished manuscript painstakingly reconstructed by Sarah Neely from drafts found in the Tait archive. It is an undefinable work that meditates on the aftermath of war, the healing potential of the creative process, medicine, culture, relationships and an attempt to think towards a future born out of chaos.
- The Berwick Street Collective’s Nightcleaners (1975) and its follow-up, ’36 to ’77 (1978). To celebrate the first digital release of the films, a special box set has been produced containing the two films on discs, reproductions of historical material, including news sheets of the women’s movement – one designed by Mary Kelly, a member of the Film Collective, an interview with whom is also included, as well as rare illustrations and contributions from the filmmakers and new essays contextualising the films.
- Shoot Shoot Shoot: The First Decade of the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative 1966-76. The 1960s and 1970s were a defining period for artists’ film and video, and the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative (LFMC) was one of the major international centres. Shoot Shoot Shoot documents the first decade of an artist-led organisation that pioneered the moving image as an art form in the UK, tracing its development from within London’s counterculture towards establishing its own identity within premises that uniquely incorporated a distribution office, cinema space and film workshop.
