With director Blake Williams in conversation with film critic Vadim Rizov
Dir. Blake Williams. Canada. 2017, 63 mins. 3-D DCP. As a major storm strikes Texas in 1900, a mysterious televisual device projects images of unknown origin. Blake Williams’s experimental 3-D sci-fi film immerses us in the aftermath of the deadly Galveston disaster, represented by remarkable and mysterious sights of one world nearing destruction as another emerges. A haunting,mind-bending consideration of technology, cinema, and the medium’s future, PROTOTYPE combines archival material with various optical manipulations and imagist surfaces to fashion an experience with no clear ancestor or likely successor. A Grasshopper Film release.
“Continuously stunning”—Vadim Rizov, Filmmaker Magazine
