Hapax Legomena VII: Special Effects

Directed by Hollis Frampton
United States, 1972
Avant-Garde, Short

Synopsis

It’s a black frame, a white dotted line. You see in the negative, just the same. (So this frame, it’s not steady, it keeps sorta shaking, as if the camera isn’t steady or the frame is not steady). That white dotted line is the frame. I wanted to affirm and honor the film frame itself.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
