Mutant Films

“That’s the way restorations are done, they are Frankensteined together from a wide variety of sources.” Cinema has always been a mutant and has destroyed and reinvented itself throughout its history. I suggest that instead of approaching the medium with the force of overconfidence in our knowledge of what it should be, we cautiously contribute to the oblivion of its unknown future by creating such mutant films to start with.
