Palermo - 'History' Standing Still
Filmfest 2006

PALERMO - 'HISTORY' STANDING STILL was shot on Super 8 by the filmmaker on location in Palermo in 1999 and was completed in 2004. The film, an experimental form of documentary, plays with the idea of ‘authenticity’ in non-fiction films, and the ways in which the textural qualities of the image and soundtrack, as well as performance, contribute to and complicate these reading.
