This week, DOCLAB is introducing three films all remarkably experimenting with the use of still photography.
“La Jetée” (The Pier) (1962), a 28-minute black and white science fiction film by Chris Marker, constructed almost entirely from still photos, tells the story of a post-nuclear war experiment in time travel.
“Terminal Bar,” (2003) by Stefan Nadelman, a fascinating pictorial history of “the toughest bar in New York,” where the filmmaker’s father bartended for 10 years in the 1970s, making a photographic record of hundreds of regulars, from the hard-drinking working class Irish to the coiffed African American gay male.
In LOOPLOOP (2008) by Patrick Bergeron, 1000 images of a sequence captured in a train going to Hanoi were stitched into one long panoramic image. Using animation, sounds warping and time shifts this video runs forwards and backwards looking for forgotten details, mimicking the way memories are replayed in the mind.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
