I've had some success showing John Smith films in this context
before..."Girl Chewing Gum" is good, and "Om" if you're after something
shorter. Both have a lot of teachable elements if that's interesting to

And of course, there's the early avant garde films..."Symphonie Diagonale"
"Retour a la Raison", etc. I also liked showing Len Lye films ( colourful,
usually not too long). I guess my suggestion here is that direct-film
techniques rarely produce content of questionable moral fibre :)
