Negative 25
Jenny Stark
3 min., Digital, 2018, USA

Made of appropriated footage from the Julia Roberts film Sleeping with the Enemy and personal landscapes from California rivers, the film reflects on two years: 1991 and 2016, the unpredictable storms that followed, and the difficulty of predicting when crises will pass.

Andrew Norman Wilson
30 min., Digital, 2019, USA

A semi-biographical fiction inspired by his father’s work at one of Kodak’s first processing labs, Wilson’s speculative gloss on the evolution of photochemical science entwines multiple perspectives and personas. Co-written by James N. Kienitz Wilkins, Kodak imagines a dialogue between a blind, mentally unstable former film technician and George Eastman himself, recordings of whom play out over a procession of photographs, home video footage, vintage Kodak ads, and animations.

Ark is a film made from 35mm prints held in the G. William Jones Film and Video Collection’s archive. The film is based on a rare version of the 1928 silent epic Noah’s Ark which makes use of optical sound added in the 1950s, along with a number of other films. The Ark depicted in the film is intended as a stand-in for the archive, a holding place to preserve films from the passage of time and a refuge from which to repopulate the world with images.
