Freeze Frame

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

Originally Super 8.

"FREEZE FRAME is the best example of a filmic signifier from which transparency and invisibility has been removed. Materials have been repeatedly re-filmed (a construction site, an incinerating plant, industrial graveyards, an antenna-like frame that continually topples over) and are exposed on top of each other. The result is that an unambiguous reading of the picture, to say nothing of their positioning in a fictive space, is impossible. This type of calculated withdrawal of images is carried to the point where the film strip is physically stopped in the projector (hence the
title) and burns up."
