1998 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 7' 00
I found a piece of black and white silent film on a toy projector in antique shop in New York State; about a minute of film; I carried it around for about 15 years before showing it to Gilbert Taggart who knew it was "Mutt and Jeff" from 1926. Raoul Barre, A Quebecer and Montrealer, worked in the first animation studios and had a hand in "Mutt and Jeff".
I blew up frames to 35mm and mounted them in 35mm slide mounts xeroxed and also contact-print 35mm on 16mm for a reconstruction-deconstruction of one of animation's earliest team.
