Scratchy Super 8 circa 1982

3.30 minutes.

Super 8 mm colour film shot in Liverpool in or around 1982. The film is a documentation of a performance event, but it came back from processing underexposed. I took a craft knife and scratched along the entire length of the film. This was tele-cined onto VHS in 1986 at the Guildford Video Workshop, re-edited with slow motion effects and set to a New Order track. This new version uploaded to youTube was submitted as a video response to the NIN Ghosts Film Festival.
