Of Camera

Steven Eastwood

2003, 14:40 minutes, colour, English


Of Camera explores the abortive attempts of two people to be together in the same space. Their disagreement is fuelled by technical difference: the woman exists on video and the man on celluloid. The story corrupts as the two realise they are incompatible and that they are being filmed and watched. Of Camera operates as a kind of cinematic Trojan Horse. It has the outward appearance of a functional noir thriller or failed romance, but scene-by-scene it collapses, revealing the sum of its parts and destroying the classical film vernacular it rode in on.
