Scenes from the Periphery
Experimental film | super8 | black and white | 2'50'' | USA | 2019
An aerial survey of the filmmaker’s place of origin, the film is a frame intensive search for home, place and direction. Edited in camera on Super 8, changing position two frames at a time, the movements of lines and masses offer a renewed look at this once lost but now rediscovered locale in a continuing quest for a sense of provenance.
