The Film of Her

The Film of Her
dir. Bill Morrison/USA/1996/12 min.
Kinoteka, sala 3

Morrison's "The Film of Her" is based on the story of a Library of Congress clerk who saved a vaultful of paper reels, documenting the earliest days of cinema, from the incinerator. Thanks to his efforts, these prints had survived, while the volatile nitrate originals had long since disappeared. The memory of an early porn actress inspires him in his struggle to save her, the collection, and himself, from obscurity.
