PLUNGE is a double-DVD edition spanning Vivian Ostrovksy’s experimental filmmaking career.
Conversant in the experimental filmmaking practices of such artists as Jonas Mekas (DIARIES, NOTES,AND SKETCHES) and Jim McBride (DAVID HOLZMAN’S DIARY, 1967), Ostrovsky was inspired to create her own film diaries. She developed a filmmaking technique that initially involved shooting with a silent Super 8 camera; she loved the “gritty…indefinition” of the images that were exposed on the film’s emulsion. She continued with an intuitive editing process, adding in sound originating from vinyl records. (Later, she filmed in MiniDV so as to simultaneously be able to record image and sound together).
