  • CountryUnited Kingdom


Dr Rachel Moore is a film specialist who concentrates in particular on early film history and theory and the historical and contemporary avant-garde. In her attempts to track the relationship of these to modern society she invokes the work of the College of Sociology and the Frankfurt School (both loosely defined). These interests are revealed in her book Savage Theory: Cinema as Modern Magic (2000). Her current research includes investigating colonial film archives; the use of archival footage in current film practice and changes in avant-garde film aesthetics. She is currently writing a short book on Hollis Frampton’s (nostalgia). This project is based on earlier research around film and contact across time and space conducted during her Guggenheim Fellowship, ‘In the Film Archive of Natural History’.
