Post Mark Lick

UK / Canada, 2002 (MIFF 2003, Experimental)

Director: Sonia Bridge

Exposed directly onto film, this playful and elegant work explores the materiality and design of the humble postage stamp. With sampled extracts from anonymous postcards comprising the soundtrack, Post Mark Lick meditates not only on the history and form of correspondence, but also on the iconic face that has pushed envelopes' for over haif a century—the Queen.
