Feeding the Doves

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 27, 2015

Didn’t the Lumière brothers do one of these? Exactly this one, in fact? I’ll say, she’s feeding those doves!

The uncertainty of early picture taking and projecting—remember those hand cranks—make this into quite a ghostly, ethereal, image. Everything moves just a little bit slow-motion. It’s a haunting, lovely effect. The familiar, made just a little bit strange.
