A documentary saga of the OuLiPo

A video by Rees Archibald, Andrew Infanti and Matthew Shlomowitz.

Made for the Rational Rec Oulipo night in June 2007.

A playful exploration of this post-war French literary movement, OuLiPo is an acronym that translates as "workshop of potential literature" most famously explored by Georges Perec and Raymond Queneau. The tenet of the OuLiPo is to create literature with constraints (not using the letter E an infamous example, or replacing nouns in texts with other from the dictionary).
