Freedom to Offend


University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses Amos Vogel, who was one of two (the other was his wife Maria) who sought to show avant-garde films in New York. Their idea for a film society came from their time as being patrons of New York City's most influential avant-garde filmmaker, Maya Deren. The Vogels then tried showing films that they knew were not being seen with any regularity in the city, leading to their Cinema 16 to becoming unique and significant.

Keywords:   Amos Vogel, avant-garde films, New York, film society, Maya Deren, Cinema 16
