About

Description (Film Synopsis or Link to Synopsis):
Filmed originally on Super 8mm in 1977 as 'Field- the Dutch Hostage Film'. Narrative played a supporting role to materiality and process (film as both object and subject). The film was transferred to digital video in 2007 and re-edited and given a soundtrack in 2015, thus becoming both a facsimile of the original and a new work. The soundtrack was pieced together from recordings made at the Roundhouse in London in 2009 during David Byrne's installation 'Playing the Building'.
