Abstract

All films emerge from and return to the void of the black screen. Black is cinema’s ground, a blank canvas in negative. Yet when we see a black or near-black image within a film, it is never nothing. What does the black screen reveal to us... or conceal from us? In this film, an unseen editor explores the ambiguity and mystery of cinema’s primary colour by taking a mental journey through some of the most obscure moments in film history.
