Golden Age

Maija Blåfield

Film about forgetting, remembering and documentary film making itself. The director filmed documentary footage during 15 years and left it unwatched prior to the editing. In time, the material became a relic, waste, treasure, and burden, telling most often about anything else than what is was originally attempting to document. Hilarious scenes emerge from unrelated images and recreated soundtrack put together in the same story.
