What follows is a dramatic fight against a frame line with a will of its own, a tempest of scratches and the ruthless film tear.

Archives are tirelessly fighting against the age-related decay of film stock. Chemical processes produce blisters and crystal carpets in the emulsion. The ephemeral beauty of decay has become the subject of art – as the analogue’s aesthetic resistance in the age of digitisation. Bill Morrison’s masterpiece “Decasia” portrays the special nature of that thing called film. His touching, ingenious composition interweaves sequences from the early days of documentary and fictional cinema in which the damaged spots enchant and at the same time comment on the images. Michael Gordon’s music shifts between serial and No Wave Drone and supplies the speeding train on which the damaged images race across the screen once more.

Hot territory then for FBI agents Frank and Wendy of the eponymous series who in this first episode must deal with Nazi dwarves in a sausage factory. And sure, the US and Latvia get what’s coming to them, too. Kaspar Jancis strikes again – delightful!
