May Way

DV/ 16 minutes / 2001 / stereo / Dutch spoken

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.
