Structural/materialist film and expanded cinema, as practised within the United Kingdom, found their origins within the ‘London Filmmakers’ Co-op’. This article argues that structural/materialist practice has evolved and while some of the original pre-occupations leading towards this type of work remain, others have changed significantly. The focus of this article is on expanded cinema work, as within this domain, this shift can be seen most clearly. Four contemporary expanded cinema works are described and discussed, demonstrating and revealing the underlying ideological concerns.
