Summer Eleven: A Film Made with Instagram


Fernando Sanches shot this on an iPhone in 2011. The Instagram filters work in the film's favor, putting it at a remove in time. People don't like the immediacy of photography anymore. They want photos to be old instantly. That's interesting because almost all photographs are turned into good ones by time. They are more connected to time than motion pictures are. Tarkovsky was mistaken when he said that time is what defines cinema. That's not quite it. Still photographs are defined by time to a far greater degree. Cinema is defined by attitude.
