Beginning in the late 1970s, a number of visual artists in downtown New York City returned to an exploration of the cinematic across mediums. Vera Dika considers their work within a greater cultural context and probes for a deeper understanding of the practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An intensive study of important activities in the New York art world of the late 1970s, this book manages the tricky feat of being at once broad in its concerns and concentrated in its attention to key figures, works, and propensities within an informal yet clearly identifiable movement. Dika gives an enlightening and edifying account of an art movement that has never been more vividly evoked and thoughtfully interpreted. This book constitutes a major intervention in the field." - David Sterritt, Columbia University, the Maryland Institute College of Art, and chair of the National Society of Film Critics

"Beautifully written, The (Moving) Pictures Generation is the best single text on this era of the US avant-garde cinema. Dika's brilliant research brings developments in cinema, art, and music in late 70s downtown New York into a common focus, and situates the innovations in filmmaking in the traditions and theoretical heritage of the classic avant-garde." - David E. James, School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California, USA and author of The Most Typical Avant-Garde: History and Geography of Minor Cinemas in Los Angeles, and co-editor of Alternative Projections: Experimental Film In Los Angeles, 1945-1980
