Twin Beaches

I don’t know why I like this film so much. I suppose I just love Super 8 films. This has a simplicity to it. This short video does a good job of capturing the style in which everyday camera owners would have shot a film in back before the fancy digital recorders we have┬ánowadays. Choppy, disjointed, shaky. But, it does tell a story…silently:

“Film about the making of a house on a sand dune isthmus dividing Lake Francis from glacial Lake Manitoba, which is 50 by 200 kilometres in dimension and inhabited by Manipogo the giant sea serpent. Subterranean floors of the house are rigged with pulleys, to be hoisted up on the occasion of the Hundred Year Flood.”
