2005, 3.20 mins, B&W, silent, DV
Entirely made from celluloid scratches and handling marks gleaned from DW Griffiths epic Birth of a Nation. Silent smelting of white debris against the darkness – tense, agitated nothingness. Narrative through the physical history of film reels.
“… gets under the fingernails with a reconstruction of the visual crackle of old films and references another mister Griffiths from cinema past.“ Kate Taylor
