A “parallel universe” of film – UbuWeb!

Tan Pin Pin‘s dug up an awesome find: UbuWeb

UbuWeb has converted all of its rare and out-of-print film & video holdings to on-demand streaming formats à la YouTube, which means that you can view everything right in your browser without platform-specific software or insanely huge downloads. We offer over 300 films & videos from artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Vito Acconci, Pipilotti Rist, Jean Genet, The Cinema of Transgression, Richard Foreman, Terayama Shuji, Paul McCarthy Jack Smith, Carolee Schneeman, John Lennon and hundreds more — of course all free of charge.

Mmm… what to look at first? Probably Peter Whitehead’s Wholly Communion. Am curious after reading about him in Sight and Sound. Wittgenstein’s Tractatus looks interesting too. And Pin Pin was looking for Harun Farocki’s Inextinguishable Fire, so yes that as well.
