Paris X 2

Produced and Directed by Jay Rosenblatt
26 minutes • 16mm • color • 1988

1st Prize, Onion City Film Festival, Chicago

This is a story about love and about love stories. It is about the static and the electricity; the pain of letting go and the attempt to re-capture. An American man is obsessed with a French woman who is obsessed by films. Paris X 2 is an experimental re-telling of a love affair through fragments and distortions of memory. Filmic images are transformed into electronic paintings. The narrative and myths of romantic love are deconstructed against a backdrop of Paris and Hollywood. It is also about the love of cinema being destroyed by video.
