Here in Glasgow it's been dark and raining for most of the past weeks. Time to stay in and watch films!
I came across Bill Morrison's Decasia tonight... a film made from found footage, all of which has been damaged or is decaying. I can't link to the film - although I think you can see it on BFI player - but here's a flavour of Bill Morrison - "Light is Calling". A melancholy beautiful thing. The music for his films is amazing - Michael Gordon using orchestra and various odd things like washing machine drums.
