A young woman laments the loss of her innocence and mourns her lover as Europe is ravaged by war in the summer of 1914.
“Entre Les Images” is a found footage film composed of preserved 35mm nitrate film frames from over 100 silent films, a large number of them irrevocably lost or only partially preserved, with nothing to mark their presence outside of these majestic few frames. As a whole, they represent the hopes, dreams, and promises of tumultuous times that left their scars on its media, perpetuating life and death between every frame. Putting these frames back into motion allowed me to find new meaning for myself and hopefully for you as well. I invite you to get lost in the images, as I did.
