Hi

Not sure how you are defining avant-garde, but what follows is a list of books 
(and a couple of articles and / or chapters) that deal in whole or part with 
experimental / underground / avant-garde (?) cinema post '76, or are over views 
which trace the influence of a pre-76 filmmaker beyond '76.
