NOISE REDUCTION II: CHINATOWN

  • Release Year: 2014
  • Runtime: 15 minutes
  • Directed By: Rahee Punyashioka
  • Country: India
The lament over the ‘death’ of film is re-enacted digitally, as the screen-as-landscape reacts to the material exegeses of film—scratches, splices, sprockets, dust etc.—that are digitally [de/re]constructed, in (im)probable verisimilitude to Celluloid. The sound design, text, and voice-over contribute to the film experience, as it simultaneously criticizes it.

This vibrant exposé gives a whole new meaning to the words “power struggle.” | Read More
