“This appears to be a washing line event. Maybe the world’s longest washing line. Well it’s quite an amazing thing to see. But once again, we are confronted with an industry that keeps us clean. At the same time, presumably causing massive pollution.”
I met Andy as he walked past me, armed with a camcorder. I was intrigued to watch his tape. He said I could. The tape presented a seventy-year-old who walked the streets of Edinburgh capturing his surroundings. I wondered, who was his audience? Why did he film?
I decided Andy and his tape would make a good subject for a documentary. My intention was to share Andy’s tape so I could experience life through the eyes of another. I wanted to discuss the nature of why we both film. However, Andy had his own agenda for making this film.
Tapes From The Revolutionary, is an experimental documentary that weaves in and out of two directors’ visions with unique results.
