Former Pulp guitarist edits collected writings of Greek-American filmmaker

Former Pulp guitarist turned film maker Mark Webber has edited the collected writings of Greek-American experimental filmmaker Gregory J Markopoulos, who was making films at the same time as Kenneth Anger, Stan Brakhage and Andy Warhol.

Film As Film: The Collected Writings Of Gregory J Markopoulos contains out of print and previously unpublished articles, plus essays and programme notes, which show Markopoulos gradually moving towards his Temenos project, an archive and screening space, which he envisaged in the Peleponnese, where his final work could be viewed in harmony with the Greek landscape.

The book is the first from Webber's new imprint The Visible Press. More details here.
