The Rumour of True Things

Director Paul Bush / 1996 / UK

Many moving images are produced for science, industry commerce and medicine that are only seen by a specialised audience and disappear soon after they have been made. The purpose of this film is to find within this ephemera images our society as it will inevitably be seen by future generations. The film is constructed entirely from those transient images in which our society is indirectly but strikingly etched-computer games weapons testing production line monitoring and marriage agency video.
