New Punk Cinema

Mike Figgis's film, Time Code has been touted as the film for a new generation of screen users, a work that allows — especially in its DVD edition — for an unprecedented amount of viewer control. This chapter considers the case of Time Code and its historical, structural and technological near relatives: audio-visions like The Chelsea Girls, Magnolia and JenniCAM. It takes issue not only with the question of interactivity — the audience's selection and construction of narrative in Time Code — but also how this film's experiment in digital video technology might contribute to an understanding of the archaeology of the screen.

Keywords:   filmmaking, The Chelsea Girls, new punk cinema, viewer control, Magnolia, JenniCAM
