Film from the Sea

Director: Alan Lambert

Film from the Sea is a strip of 35mm cine-film found on a beach in Valencia, Spain. Corrosion has allowed only little photographic emulsion to survive, although two uniformed figures (possibly Spanish Revolution soldiers) in heated discussion can be perceived. The 80 frames found (3.2 seconds) have been mounted in slide holders and screened on a slide carousel, with no fixed duration. Viewing the film this way intends to explore a different sense of time and scale in the individual frames, here presented like large abstract expressionist canvases.
