There Are No Rules! : Restored and revisited avant-garde films from the Netherlands
A unique retrospective of Dutch experimental cinema is being presented at the Anthology Film Archive in New York from February 24-March 9, 2021.
Originally planned to open last April in the Anthology cinema, until Covid intervened, this survey of Dutch avant-garde films will provide a chance to see some very special films from the Eye Collection compiled in 5 programs.
This survey of Dutch experimental cinema, from the 1920s to the present day, includes 2 programs dedicated to the foundation of the Filmliga from the late 20's, 1 program organized around the post-war experimental scene from the 50's up until recent times and 2 special programs dedicated to the work of artist Henri Plaat, whose films have been recently digitally restored.
"There Are No Rules!" has been co-curated by the Eye Filmmuseum's Simona Monizza (restorer and curator of artists' films); Mark-Paul Meyer (senior curator); and Marius Hrdy (former curator-in-residence at the Eye in 2018). The retrospectice is co-presented by Dutch Culture USA and also presented in partnership with the Stadsarchief Rotterdam, the Frans Zwartjes Foundation, and the Fonds Henri Storck.
The program is now presented online as a streaming series on the VOD platform of Anthology Film Archive and is available worldwide.
