UPDATE: [Film] Renegade Visions

updated: 
Monday, February 16, 2009 - 10:44am
Matthew Edwards

This is an update to a call for papers I sent out last year, with regard to
a new anthology tentatively titled Renegade Visions: Films and filmmakers
that defy popular cinema. The anthology's aim is to examine independent,
experimental, cult, or maligned cinema, across the globe that has gone
against the grain of commercial and popular
cinema.

I have collected over 18 articles for the anthology, though there are a
some key filmmakers which have yet to be covered which I feel is essential
to the book.

These filmmakers include:

Guy Maddin
Gus Van Sant
Carlos Reygades (Japon)
Wisit Sasanatieng (Tears of the Black Tiger)
