A moment of truth becomes the subject of fiction. Cold contemplation and decisive action combined and confined in a 1942 newspaper photograph.
Taking its title from a famous photograph by Russell Corgi, published in the 1942 Buffalo Courier Express, the film is made up of a series of close-ups of the photograph as it unfolds to reveal the full image. Accompanied by film-noir styled narration creating a context for the photograph’s existence, this is a striking and original first film from Jonathan Ogilvie.
The film was selected for the Cannes Film Festival, and while there, Ogilvie shot Super 8 film of his experience that he used in his subsequent short film, This Film Is A Dog.
