The Swedish-American artist Gunvor Nelson figures among the most important experimental filmmakers of her generation. Her work considerably influenced the New American Cinema at the end of the 1960s, as much by its themes (women, the body, memory, dreams) as by its formal investigations (animation, collage, found footage).

The films and the essay contained in this box set reflect a half-century of evolution in media and technique. From her first experimental films made in California to her more recent Swedish films and video, material fictions joyously exalt in a fireworks of sensations.
