HANDFUL OF DUST

Directed by Hope Tucker
United States, 2012
Short

Synopsis

This obituary is composed of sequences of cyanotypes, exposed in the sand using paper sensitized with handmade emulsion and negatives from a 1954 film. Rates of cancer in the film’s cast and crew reflect that it was set downwind of the Nevada Test Site during the era of above ground nuclear testing.
