Books: Mike Hoolboom's Practical Dreamers

by Jon Davies

Daily Xtra, Sept. 24, 2008

Passionate ideas behind the flickering lights of film- Mike Hoolboom has established himself as one of the most passionate and hard-working proselytizers and chroniclers of what he calls the "fringe" film/video movement. If we go by Hoolboom's massive new tome of interviews with dozens of artists and filmmakers, Practical Dreamers: Conversations with Movie Artists, fringe movies can cover everything from independent and avant-garde cinema to video, installation art and projector performances- pretty much any moving image can be appreciated as art.
