Abstract

This statement was used to solicit members for Amos Vogel’s groundbreaking film society Cinema 16 (1947–1963). The statement highlights Vogel’s interest in screening and bringing to light cinematic detritus, a very different goal from that of institutions like MoMA. An early pioneer in screening American experimental cinema, Vogel was quite catholic in his tastes and did not delineate an absolutist line between experimental work and other forms of marginal cinema, screening documentaries and industrial and scientific films alongside experimental cinema.
