The film, experimental both in form and content and following the found footage convention, asks questions about corporeality and evanescence inherent to every living creature. Above all, it expresses boundless despair, pain and longing for everything that irreversibly turns into nothingness. Referring to Bill Morrison’s Decasia, Rosenblatt’s film is farewell to cinema, which, due to the use of film stock, was the art practiced by alchemists for many decades.
Jay Rosenblatt is an internationally recognized artist who has been working as an independent filmmaker since 1980 and has completed over twenty-five films. His work explores our emotional and psychological cores. They are personal in their content yet universal in their appeal. His films have received over 100 awards and have screened throughout the world. Eight of his films have been at the Sundance Film Festival and several of his films have shown on HBO/Cinemax, the Independent Film Channel and the Sundance Channel. ZagrebDox screened many of his films in International Competition, My Best Dox, and in the author's retrospective in 2012, when Rosenblatt held a masterclass.
