Film-Makers Cooperative

The Film-Makers' Cooperative series of radio conversations with filmmakers, musicians, writers, critics, and cinephiles provides a platform for active members of the community to express their views and visions on the past, present, and future of experimental and underground cinema. The series delivers a kaleidoscopic overview of auteurs both American and international, who are involved with cinema not for any personal or financial gain, but from a passion for the art of the moving image.

Interviews highlight major figures in the history of underground cinema, as well as a driving forces in its current moment.
