Not Blacking Out, Just Turning the Lights Off

James Richards
UK 2012 / 16’

Not Blacking Outis similar to the compositions of the Godfather of American experiment, Jonas Mekas. Like his New York master, Richards composes his films from pictures taken at different occasions, but it is a world apart from the achievements of the pioneers of found footage. At times complemented by a soundtrack the flood of flickering images creates a wonderful psychedelic whole.
