BEST EXPERIMENTAL FILMMAKER
MIKE HOOLBOOM Mike Hoolboom has made a film with no images at all, apart from a white screen. He has made films entirely from found footage. He has flooded films with his voice, and dispersed his voice among others. Celluloid, video, image, text, fiction, unfiction – everything is material to be worked, sweated and thrown up on screen. Hoolboom’s restless, brainy missives from inside his head aren’t just the work of a writer who makes films, but of an artist who writes in pictures and sounds.
