Captured tells the story of film and video in the Lower East Side and the East Village in the artists' own words. It is part formal history and part inspirational text, to remind people on the outside looking in how often their contributions form the invisible pillars of American art and popular life. Movements such as No Wave and the Cinema of Transgression are covered, as is the story of Pull My Daisy, considered among the true progenitors of indie film. Captured is a must-have for fans of independent film and students of cinema everywhere.
