Film Title Poem

Directed by Jennifer West (XIII)
United States, 2016
Avant-Garde
  • Silent
  • No subtitles

Synopsis

An etched, hand-painted 35mm digitized film comprised of collaged words, images, patterns and glitches shot from over 500 movie title cards to a musical soundtrack. The film is part of a larger project that considers the “remembered” movie, and how fiction weaves itself into our lives and memories.

Our take

In this playful, poetic collage of memorable title cards, Jennifer West effortlessly weaves between formats, techniques, and typography to evoke a “psychic montage” of her cinephilic inner life. Vibrant and dream-like, Film Title Poem testifies to the potent sway that the movies can have on us.
