Takahiko Iimura (b. 1937)
Filmmakers (1969)
Filmmakers (1969, 28min.) documents in a very personal manner the portraits of the most active experimental filmmakers in the mid 1960's: Stan Brakhage, Stan Vanderbeek, Jack Smith, Jonas Mekas, Andy Warhol, and Takahiko Iimura. It is a rare historical document of the "Golden Age" of underground film. The film also characterizes the shooting method to each filmmaker as partially uses their style of filming in their parts. The sound counteracts the shooting style as Iimura himself records the voice in words what he sees in the picture objectifying the voice over the image.
