Three years ago a negative was found of a lost Finnish film made in 1937. After years of natural chemical processes and gradual degradation, the nitrate frames transformed the images of the filmed melodrama. Portions of the scanned negative, with all their defects left as is, make up a fascinating materialization of time and bear witness to the mutability of meaning and perception.


Synopsis

Three years ago at La Cinémathèque Française a negative was found of a lost Finnish film from 1937: Silja – Fallen Asleep When Young. After years of gradual decay, the melodrama's images were transformed into an unintended experience. Portions of the scanned negative, with all their defects left as is, reflect a fascinating materialization of time and bear witness to the mutability of meaning and perception.
