Film as a Subersive Art: Amos Vogel and Cinema 16 is the story of a an unsung hero of world cinema. Though he never made any films himself, Amos Vogel was a pioneering force in the exhibition and distribution of European and Asian cinema in the United States and beyond, to say nothing of his advancement of the American avantgarde. Film as a Subversive Art the title is taken from Vogels own 1974 book shows how Vogel created and ran for 16 years what became Americas largest film club. It shows how, should he choose it, every element of a mans life, private and public, are linked. This film is not going to revolutionize the documentary form, but hopefully it might spark something in a young filmmaker who suspects there is, to use Vogels words, «another world of cinema» out there.
