Springtime Wound Motor
The film maps structural principals onto an interview format. The title refers to the spring mechanism of the Bolex camera, which limits each single take to roughly 30 seconds. The film displays these short sections of a longer, continuous interview, highlighting the limits of memory and historiography. SPRINGTIME WOUND MOTOR is part of Mike Plante's Lunchfilm series of commissioned shorts (made for the cost of a lunch between Plante and filmmaker Mike Gibisser).
