Besides being one of Canada's most celebrated visual artists, Michael Snow is one of the premier experimental filmmakers of his time. Working within the realm of the "avant-garde," his cinematic work has influenced filmmakers as diverse as Wim Wenders, Derek Jarman, Peter Greenaway, Atom Egoyan and Martin Scorcese. Snow's "Wavelength" is one of the seminal works of cinema's avant-garde. Presence and Absence is certain to become the standard work on the films of Michael Snow. With contributions by film scholars, artists and curators, this generously illustrated volume is the most comprehensive study of Snow's films to date, and includes enlightening essays, anecdotal pieces, an annotated bibliography and filmography.
