What does it mean to recognize a documentary gesture in Kren's films? What is being documented? The documentary images that Kren uses in his works do not arise out of a plan, but instead, come from the right moment, a coincidence, a momentary observation, or a seized opportunity. (Michael Palm)

Called the 'father of postwar European avant-garde cinema' and regarded in some circles as the continental equivalent of America's Stan Brakhage, Kren began making experimental short films in 8mm in the early 1950s, moving up to 16mm in 1957. His subjects were everyday objects — walls, trees, people — but manipulated according to amusingly elaborate diagrams and charts that showed a sensibility both rigorous and whimsical. 'Which Way to CA?' collects 18 films from 1968-1990. Includes 26/71: Cartoon: Balzac and the Eye of God and No Film among others.
