I am interested in a cinema that might have been, one that developed along a different evolutionary path than the films of today. On the surface, these films are very much in dialogue with a Structuralist aesthetic, but my interests are less about interrogating material and narrative than they are a speculative return to cinema’s genesis, proposing a film form that did not radically alter course after the discovery of the edit. I am imagining a cinema that grew from something like Tom Gunning's "cinema of attractions," but one that never felt the noose of Aristotelian structure around its neck. It is an affective, disorganized cinema that I am after.
