B-ROLL with Andre
A documentary-style detective with anonymous testimony about Andre, who proves more than just a brilliant crook. Clichés scrutinised with humour.
A pathetic movie pitch slips into the murkiness of memory, and histories best forgotten or purposely ignored. (JNKW)
In 2012, Kodak went bankrupt. Enter the mind’s eye of a blind former Kodak film technician, reconstructing the past in hallucinatory detail.
This Action Lies
This Action Lies is about the limits of observation; about staring very hard at something while listening to something else.
