Morgan Fisher collected strips of film while working in Hollywood. Narrative features, news footage, adverts and trailers were then filmed in a single continuous shot. Fisher, a leading figure in experimental film since the 60s, describes the content of the footage and the technical qualities of the film itself, documenting his own involvement in a period of film history, and meditating on film itself.
