Honestly I don't know so much about the "traditional" avang garden, so I am going to talk about the avang garden film or called to "experimental film". In this semester I have a class about this subject and I like so much, because it's so different in relation with the typical films ("naturalism"), like to the Hollywood’s films.
This kind of films use formal technical more expressive, for make a sensation into the spectators, like to worry, sad, disconcert, etc; it's focus in the aesthetics and doesn’t focus in the story line or with a screenplay.
I don’t know a specific artist on this kind of films, but there is a director connected with this kind of films, called David Lynch. Lynch make films so strange for so much people, because his films don’t have the traditional story line. He has films where he plays with the image and the temporal line; play with the past, present and dreams. Also, he uses technical strange in relation with the realism films, for make different sensations. Sometimes we can lose in the films, because we don’t understand the scene. One films I like so much is “Mullholland Drive”, I had to watch it for one class and try to make psychoanalysis, well, something like that. He has a short film so good, called “rabbits” and it’s so strange and distressing.
