A transcode and keyframe edit of the famous final scene of Cinema Paradiso, exploring the fragility of a digital cinema landscape. Only 24 frames were removed from the original sequence, but the results are both beautiful and irreversibly traumatic. When a ‘film’ is no longer actual film, but instead formed of algorithms, new fragilities are exposed in the construction of the work, and the technological and commercial structures that determine its support.
