Impromptu (1989) 16mm, color, 8 min

Genre: Experimental

This piece of film was initially shown at the 1989 Toronto Congress and not destined to be screened again in its present form. Thus the title IMPROMPTU refers partly, due to people having asked to screen the reel, to the distribution of a print. However, each scene being a combined image filmed frame by frame alternatively at two or more periods during a given day, a procedure depending for its exact execution on the manner in which the film situation evolved, "impromptu" also refers to the tendency of reality to veer towards the unexpected. The sound was supplied fortuitously by the lab and some attention should be given not to cut off the activity near the top edge of the frame.
