THIS IS MONTAGE

by Holly FISHER
1978-2019 / 16mm / color / silent / 1S / 7' 25

Inspired by a passage from Sergei Eisenstein’s Film Form, this film explores relationships between film and language while playfully challenging the Russian filmmaker’s theory of film montage … and so lies between a wink and a nod to the master. Also a bit of tongue-in-cheek: had I been a good typist I may never have become a filmmaker. Text from Film Form had special resonance for me because I studied Chinese while undergrad in Asian Studies (Barnard/Columbia University).
