Reviews and Features

"An experiment in creative analytics, Jolted Images partakes of a critical approach that is both playful and rigorous. Levi's jolting of various accounts of history of European and North American avant-gardes through his intertextual musings makes for a refreshing and seductive read." - Kamila Kuc, Cineaste Magazine, Vol. XLIII, No. 4

In the annual critics' poll conducted by the film journal Ekran, Jolted Images was saluted as a "paper movie" and included on a list of ten best films of 2017 (selection by Jurij Meden, Curator of Film Exhibitions at the George Eastman House, New York)

Jolted Images

Unbound Analytic

Jolted Images brings together a large cast of mainstream and avant-garde cineastes, artists, photographers, comics creators, poets, and more, to reflect on a wide range of phenomena from the realms of cinema and visual culture in the Yugoslav region, broader Europe, and North America. Far from a staid monograph, the book takes a cue from filmmaker Du¿an Makavejev, who once wrote that there are times when it is necessary "to jolt art, no matter what the outcome"; to that end, the book infuses its analysis with playful, creative transfiguration of the material at hand.
