"Poetic Justice" A Film by Hollis Frampton


Hollis Frampton


Artists' book / film log featuring a single static photographic image that has text overlay that changes on every page throughout the book. "This book swims upstream, to the place where it was spawned. Twenty years ago, when I disbelieved that it would ever be given me to make kilms, and when I was a lowercase surrealist, and when I disbelieved that film-making started, like making love by telephone, with a script...I wrote films scripts. Later, it came time to make a work in seven parts, of which 'Poetic Justice' is the uncomfortable (it doesn't move) second, and to recapitulate some of the history of film art as though it were my like to recollect..." -- from Frampton's afterward.
