Aldo Tambellini’s BLACK (1965)

The Black Film Series, a sequence of seven films made between 1965-69, is a primitive, sensory exploration of the medium, which ranges from total abstraction to the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, the Vietnam War and black teenagers in Coney Island. This first installment, simply entitled BLACK, was created entirely without the use of a camera. Tambellini physically worked on the film strip, treating the emulsion with chemicals, paint, ink and stencils, slicing and scraping the celluloid, and dynamically intercutting material from industrial films, newsreels and broadcast television. Abrasive, provocative and turbulent, the series remains relevant even today and is a rapid-fire response to the beginning of the information age and a world in flux.
