Light is Calling

Bill Morrison is an avante garde film director from New York. In 2004, he teamed up with composer, Michael Gordon, to create a short film called Light is Calling. It was composed by using the same techniques that were used in his earlier film Decasia to show the impermanent nature of film. He borrowed archival footage from facilities such as the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, and he spliced them together, using computer technology to enhance the composition and decay. None of the original archived film was further damaged or destroyed to create the film.

It's captivating and extraordinarily beautiful. I highly recommend viewing it in High Quality to catch more of the detail.
