Filmmaker's note

I created THE SIGHT while at the Independent Imaging Retreat in Mount Forest, ON, Canada. Phil Hoffman runs the residency and it was an immersive experience - watching 16mm prints by day and night, shooting around the farm, hand processing footage in the basement of the barn, and toning and tinting B&W 16mm stock on site. This film came from that experience - it is a film about process, about ways of seeing and looking through the celluloid membrane.

Notes

Director Jeremy Moss will be available for a Q&A after the June 4 screening.
