“Film as Film: The Collected Writings of Gregory J. Markopoulos” contains some 
ninety out-of-print or previously unavailable articles by the Greek-American 
filmmaker who, as a contemporary of Kenneth Anger, Stan Brakhage and Andy 
Warhol, was at the forefront of a movement that established a truly independent 
form of cinema. Beginning with his early writings on the American avant-garde 
and auteurs such as Dreyer, Bresson and Mizoguchi, it also features numerous 
essays on Markopoulos’ own practice, and on films by Robert Beavers, that were 
circulated only in journals, self-published editions or programme notes. The 
texts become increasingly metaphysical and poetic as the filmmaker pursued his 
ideal of Temenos, an archive and screening space to be located at a remote site 
in the Peloponnese where his epic final work could be viewed in harmony with 
the Greek landscape. Gregory J. Markopoulos (1928-1992) is a unique figure in 
film history, one whose
 life’s work stands in testament to his strength of vision and commitment to 
the medium.
