Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2
2004. Italy. Directed by Angela Ricci Lucchi, Yervant Gianikian. This work, part of a trilogy on war, focuses largely on the effects of modern warfare on the human body. The original 1919–22 footage is stepped-printed and slowed down to reveal fleeting expressions and gestures, and to emphasize the scratched, blotched, fragile nature of the celluloid itself. 72 min.
