|The Vanauley Project (2004)
Cinema circa 1895 as it was with Louis Lumiere... Four single shot vignettes photographed with a vintage hand-cranked 35mm movie camera. These are the first in a series of 35mm observational films created without the assistance of a motion picture laboratory. Hand-processed and printed by the filmmaker, the project acts as an anthropological document of a neighborhood in transition while celebrating the textural beauty and analog simplicity of early motion picture film technology.
