Piu di una storia dell’avanguardia cinematogrofica, Free Radicals è un inno al cinema sperimentale nel quale Chodorov difende le forme libere di uomini e donne liberi all’alba del 21esimo secolo. Le stelle di questa pellicola imperdibile, destinata agli connaisseurs quanto agli amatori illuminati, sono Len Lye, Stan Brakhage, Maya Deren, Maurice Lemaître, Robert Breer, Ken Jacobs e, sopratutto, Jonas Mekas e Peter Kubelka. Pip Chodorov, l’architetto di questa storia della seconda meta del 20esimo secolo, ci è nato dentro.

Much more than a history of avant-garde cinema, Free Radicals is an ode to experimental film in which Chodorov champions the free forms of these free men and women at the dawn of the 21st century. The stars of this must-see film, shrewdly aimed at connoisseurs and enlightened amateurs alike, are Len Lye, Stan Brakhage, Maya Deren, Maurice Lemaître, Robert Breer, Ken Jacobs and, most prominently, Jonas Mekas and Peter Kubelka. Pip Chodorov, the architect of this history of the second half of the 20th century, was born in the midst of it.
