A Film On Film
A Film on Film is the fusion of two sensibilities: Selina Mayer the photographer, and David McNulty the director. David decides upon the grainy, blurry image of super 8 to capture Selina and her naked model in the forest. As the mirrored title suggests, a Film on Film comes full circle, by instinctively and sensually filming the photographer, who is also guided by her instinct.
