BIG BROTHER

by Caroline AVERY
1983 / 16mm / color / silent / 1S / 8' 00




A comic book/collage film. The images are taken from commercials (35mm and 16mm) and super-8. Sections of the frames were cut out and then placed into super-8 film frames which had been painted upon, a mouth here, a leg there. This film can also be read like a comic on the rewinds. The film was blown up to 16mm. Ironically my hope had been to keep the film in super-8 as a discourse on gauge chauvinism, one of the implications in the title.
