A new form of film
7 March 2019 | by miggymartinezSee all my reviews

This won the Tiger at the filmfestival in Rotterdam (IFFR), deservedly in my opinion. The screening i attended had a QnA which unfortunately i had to walk out on since i needed to get home .. shame it would have been interesting to hear the director's thoughts.

I do know she made this two hour film from over 800 hours of livestreamed footage which she recorded, then edited down and reused with permission.

There's a rotating cast of characters and i don't want to say too much about them since it is fun to get to know them without any preconceptions.

Present Perfect was one of a few films at iFFR this year which engaged with internet culture, a fertile area from which i am sure more films will come.
