Ubu Films: Sydney Underground Movies, 1965-1970
This book is a chronicle of the UBU Films group. Formed by Albie Thoms, David Perry, Aggy Read and John Clark in Sydney 1965, it was Australia's first group devoted to making, exhibiting and distributing experimental films. For only a brief period, Ubu established a viable proposition that film, performance, painting and political action could coalesce into a vibrant interactive community. What follows is the story of its rise and fall.
