(Charlie Shackleton, UK 2021, 82 min., 35mm)
Fragments of hundreds of films from around the world bring together an ensemble cast of actors with one thing in common: each is no longer alive. Together, they contend with a fragile existence lived solely through these traces of their work.
The Afterlight itself exists as a single 35mm film print. Further eroding every time it screens, the film is a living document of its life in circulation. Eventually, it will disappear entirely.
Followed by Q&A with the director and Curator of Film Exhibitions Jared Case.
