Fascinating short film.
10 May 2019 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Every so often among the wannabe short movies and film school exercises that get space in festivals, something stands out. THE FILM OF HER is remarkably resonant.

The plot line has a clerk who stops the paper prints from the Library of Congress copyright rolls being burnt because he believes an old porno movie, which has haunted him since he saw it in his youth, is included ... intriguing points of contact with reality and shared experience.

Video transfer uses mixes, superimpositions and undercranking to create emphasis. Director Morrison went on to do a feature length compilation of decayed Nitrate film to be played with live music. These got as far as the Pordenone Silent Film festival.
