The Magic of Decay... Decay of the Magic

Director: 
Stephan E. Hauser

Invitation to experience the visual magic created within the entropy of film, by focusing on the film deteriorated by time. As the director states: “the magic of the deterioration is most effective when it seems even influence the course of the plot (necessarily incomplete)”. An aesthetic appreciation of the decay of nitrate questions the evanescence of the "movie magic", its illusions and its usual rituals.
