Synopsis

Reflecting on memory, lost friendships and death, and challenging the conventional roles of words and pictures in cinema - how they interrelate and what we expect of them - this highly formal yet surprisingly personal film by Hollis Frampton is rightly considered one of the absolute giants of post-war experimental cinema. Enigmatic photographic prints slow burn before our eyes while narrator Michael Snow (the director of Wavelength) recounts an intimate story about each one.
