Stephen Dwoskin is perhaps the most traditional of all contemporary 'experimental' filmmaker craftsmen. A New Yorker now living and working in London, Dwoskin rarely uses superimpositions, impulsive camera movements, or abstract images of any sort. His films are, in essence, documentaries- - even to the extent of having soundtrack narration in several cases. They are experimental only in their uncompromising commitment to their subject matter: the study of human isolation and gestures we make towards communication.
