Edition Zip is a publishing platform and archive for documentary essay films. 
The selected film texts, which are pictorial, poetic and narrative at the same time, address a readership that goes beyond the usual cinephile. The geographic focus of each edition reaches out to readers interested in social, political and cultural contexts of the filmmakers. Edition Zip publishes in original language and English translation in order to bring those narratives across geographic borders. The online version of this publishing plattform is a fragmentary archive, unfurling the film texts in a curated version. The printed art books published at Edition Zip contain the entire film texts: to purchase a copy please contact us.
