Three is a severe limitation, but if you insist, one way to get at it is to 
start not with films but with major traditions since mid-century and select 
exemplary works within them. So for example abstract (Brakhage), minimalist 
(Warhol, Wavelength), essayistic (Marker, Farocki, Forgacs). I include 
Brakhage's lens-captured films in the problematic "abstract."

Dear Frameworkers:

I am working on a new film project with the Ealaíontóirí Mhuscraí
(that's Irish for the Muskerry Region Artists Group)

Part of the project will involve film / video making workshops where I will show
them works from experimental film, creative documentary and artists' moving 
image works
as a point of reference and inspiration for their own initial explorations
into the realm of the moving image

I am compiling a short-list of 'Essential' works to show them during these 
and I would appreciate responses to the question:
'What are the 3 Essential Films that you would show Artists
on their first foray into the Moving Image Realm ?'

I look forward to hearing any suggestions

Le míle buíochas (with many thanks)
