    4K scans of several of Lipmanā€™s poetic, exploratory, partially-narrative short works are presented and the former UCLA archivist opens up new conversations about how artists look after their work, whilst casting a fresh eye on the broad terrain of alternative film as it has been historically received. Archival material on Stan Brakhage and Andrei Tarkovsky, along with details of collaborations with artists Bruce Baillie, Jeanne Dielman cinematographer Babette Mangolte, Bela Tarr composer Mihaly Vig and synthesizer pioneer Patrick Gleeson all feature in this highly unusual, immersive and discursive, personally inflected hybrid of curated-programme and essay-film.
