The Experimental Archive

About

Introduced by the Archive's Exhibitions and Programme's Manager Mark Williams, this programme suggests a possible road towards establishing a history of New Zealand experimental film and video. New Zealand is a small country with an indigenous population that was colonised by Britain in 1840. While European culture has been the dominating influence in the past 150 years New Zealand is still evolving it's own identity as a South Pacific nation. Rather than a Greatest Hits, this programme suggests possible roads towards establishing a history of New Zealand experimental film and video. While many of the films in this programme could be considered within the internationally recognised tendancies of the experimental/avant garde, there is also an opportunity to place these films in the broader context of our recognised national cinema, and it's representation of people and place.
