A Magic Act

Country: UK
Duration: 10 mins
Sound: Mag Stripe


A product of DAVID LEISTER’s alchemy, where everything but the film stock has been hand-made, with an emphasis on water marks and scratches. The film is accompanied by an accordion score that hesitates as much as the reluctantly projected image. Developed in vinaigrette dressing and printed with the light from a letter box, the results are truly an act of magic.
