[Paul Clipson’s films] are a photo-chemical catalog of the visible world, charged with psychic energy, scored partly by chance, and imbued with a generosity of being.
-Otie Wheeler, MUBI Notebook

Clipson’s fillms are unique to the contemporary moment in their visual intensity, but also in their commitment to a realm beyond language, beyond the culture of ‘information.’ Clipson wants to deliver us knowledge of the world—real, discrete, actual things.
-Dan Browne, San Francisco Cinematheque

“Paul and I worked on this project for a little over a year before his passing. Deciding on a grouping of works that would constitute a ‘Selected Films’ proved no easy feat. The titling, selection and sequencing of films, and the images used for the jacket and booklet have been presented exactly as Paul wanted. It has been an honor to put together and realize this collection, which I believe captures something of the breadth, dynamism, poetry, and rare beauty of Paul’s cinematic vision.

This project would not be possible without the support of Yelena Soboleva and Anya Kamenskaya.”
-Alex Cobb, February 2019
