The Function of Film

Directed by Joseph Bernard
United States, 1982
Short, Avant-Garde

Synopsis

A declarative and somewhat facetious circular text weaves through many sampled versions of what film might be, i.e., home movie, Hollywood, training, documentary, newsreel, sports, abstraction, etc.. Shot in b&w and silent, yet two more categories, this film has a purposeful identity unto itself.

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