Available for the first time on DVD, Guy Sherwin’s acclaimed Short Film Series, a unique collection of interconnected 16mm 3 minute films started in 1975. The series is held together by certain formal considerations: each film is three minutes long, i.e. the length of a roll of 16mm film, all films are b/w and silent, and the order in which they are shown is flexible. Apart from this there is a range of imagery from portraiture to still life to travel.

Experimental Cinema [dvd]
The films operate on the border between movement and stillness, revealing their inner logic through an active engagement in looking. '100' reels of epiphanies, time-lapse studies, ordinary objects and scenes rendered strange and ambiguous.
