Alberto Grifi (1938-2007) died a couple of days ago after a long battle. Unsung master of the italian experimental cinema and film hacker (his homemade 1974 vidigraph device is pictured above), Alberto was a friend of Liquid Cat. And we were friends of Alberto’s. He is no more. We’re just sad.

Alberto was the author, among other works, of Verifica incerta (1964, with G. Baruchello), a cinematographic cut-up massacre of discarded hollywood films, and Anna (1975), the first italian feature shot on video, a meta-film.
