Experimental Film Society <> (EFS)
is pleased to announce the publication of *Luminous Void: Experimental Film
Society Documents*, a book chronicling the history of EFS. The book launch
will take place at Filmbase <>, Dublin, and feature a
special live performance by Vicky Langan
<>* & *Maximilian
Le Cain <>.

*EFS* is an international group of filmmakers dedicated to the creation of
personal, formally challenging cinema. Originally founded by Rouzbeh
Rashidi  <>in Tehran, EFS has been based in
Dublin since 2004 where it has been responsible for injecting a new energy
into Irish alternative film. Its defiantly independent vision, both deeply
informed by film history and radically modern, has animated over five
hundred films as well as numerous performances, installations and sound

*Luminous Void: Experimental Film Society Documents* chronicles this unique
chapter in contemporary underground cinema by compiling a series of essays,
interviews and manifestos that set out and explore the ideas that drive and
emerge from EFS filmmaking. It includes new texts by renowned film
critic Adrian
Martin <>, and by *Alice Butler &
Daniel Fitzpatrick*, the curatorial team behind AEMI <> (artists
and experimental moving image).

Vicky Langan <>* & *Maximilian Le Cain
<>’s longstanding filmmaking partnership has
recently expanded to include live performance collaborations. They
performed at the 2017 Lausanne Underground Film & Music Festival and at
TULCA Festival of Visual Arts where their feature film *Inside* (2017)
premiered. Le Cain makes experimental films that explore a personal
relationship with cinema as a site of haunting, while Langan’s practice
operates across several overlapping fields. Her vulnerable, emotionally
charged work envelops audiences in an aura of dark intimacy.

*Copies of **Luminous Void: Experimental Film Society Documents (edited
by Rouzbeh Rashidi  <>& Maximilian Le Cain
<>, 164 pages) will be on sale at the launch
priced €15, or can be ordered directly by emailing <>*

The book was designed, typeset & made into pages in Adobe InDesign by Borna
Izadpanah <>, London. The text was
set in typefaces Romain and SangBleu by Swiss Typefaces, Vevey. The book
cover was designed by Pouya Ahmadi <>,
