Standard Gauge

Directed by Morgan Fisher
United States, 1984
Short, Avant-Garde


One long piece of 16, many short pieces of 35; found footage, not vivified by projection but presented as a succession of objects; partly an autobiography, partly a history of a technological artifact and the institution of which it is the foundation, the commercial motion picture industry.

  • francisca bacon's rating of the film Standard Gauge

    2,5 I wish my film stock fetishism were more exacerbated, and I dissolved in wit-obnubilating jubilation while watching this salvage array, but my inculpable -philia just wouldn't raise filmmaking's omphalos – the frame – to unconditional cult object. At this point in time the footage I like most ain't self-sufficient. Suspended, in the air, like a bulb from electrical connections, redcurrant from the twigs, a discus
