William Eggleston - STRANDED IN CANTON

"William Eggleston's pioneering video work "Stranded In Canton" has been restored and reformed by Mr. Eggleston in collaboration with film-maker Robert Gordon and is finally available, almost thirty-five years later.

The book from Twin Palms Publishers contains forty frame enlargements from the digital re-master, a brief appreciation from filmmaker Gus Van Sant, and a DVD of the 77-minute film itself, along with more than thirty minutes of bonus footage and an interview with Mr. Eggleston and Mr. Gordon conducted at the Toronto Film Festival.

Shot in 1974 with a Sony Porta-Pak, the crazily careering Stranded in Canton documents a cast of hard-drinking Southerners with the intimacy, ease and instability of a seasoned participants. Whiffs of Southern Gothic are not new to Mr. Eggleston's work, but here they rise to the surface--fierce, tragic and proud." -- The New York Times"
