Floterian - Hand-Printings from a Film History

Australia, 1981 (MIFF 1982, 3 Films by Arthur and Corinne Cantrill)

Director: Arthur and Corinne Cantrill

Sequences from the filmmakers' 16mm, Super 8 and Stand 8 mm work, dating from 1960 onwards, are contact-printed onto 35mm film, then reduced to 16mm for projection. The relationship of the frame sizes of the smaller gauges to that of the 35mm causes a fluttering on the screen which relates to the ephemerality of the memory and the effect on it of the passing of times.

Floterian is an old English word meaning fluttering.
