Experimental film art – archives and the historical

Malcolm Le Grice also uses bits of found film in his work, though in quite different ways. In Little Dog for Roger the found film he decided to use was that of a 9.5 reel shot by his parents when he was a child. This is quite a personal use of found film and explores the idea of memory. The film can be found on the anthology Shoot, Shoot, Shoot 2006 distributed by LUX. Berlin Horse 1970 another film by Le Grice is a mixture of shot and found footage, the found footage was from a news reel of a horse being led from a burning barn, that integrates with the filmed shots towards the end of the piece.
