James Fotopoulos Wikipedia
James Fotopoulos (born 1976, Norridge, Illinois) is an independent filmmaker whose work is low-budget and rigorous, and consists of experimental narrative features, non-narrative shorts, and video installations. He began creating his film projects as a teenager in 1993, and as of 2012, has made over 100 films and videos.
Fotopoulos' work was featured in the 2004 Whitney Biennial and he has collaborated with media artist Cory Arcangel.
The Film Journal praises Fotopoulos, writing he is "one of cinema's most unique voices, a filmmaker of uncompromising vision."
Of Fotopoulos' film Migrating Forms, Amy Taubin of The Village Voice wrote that while it was not a pleasurable experience, the film stayed with her most vividly as a "kind of stripped-down Eraserhead", which offered "a formal purity and obsessive power that's all too rare these days".2000 won Best Feature at New York Underground Film Festival for Migrating Forms2005 Creative Capital Grant Film/Video
