Undev. (2016)


Emulsion stores its memory in latent images. Time passes, and the information sits there, qiuetly, in the film’s “subconscious”, without revealing itself. In some cases, it would sit there for years on end, so that even the person who once made sure the memory is preserved has no recollection of having done that. As fate should have it, these non-existent images can either see the light of day, or never be born at all.
