May Way

DV/ 16 minutes / 2001 / stereo / Dutch spoken

A road movie full of nostalgia and desire. The voice over reads excerpts from travel reports that my grandfather wrote in the seventies. The photo’s in the film were taken by my father between 1963 and 1997. He used to show them to the family as slideshows, a performative memory game of sequence recognition and retelling the story of the places and circumstances that the images depict. This selection was digitised by filming a projection: they are not stills, but moving images; aged and rimpled, scratched, and degraded by being used over a long period of time.
