“A slow motion blow-up to 35mm foregrounds the kinetic serendipity of a handhold portrait shot in 1980 and entirely edited in-camera. At the time I explored the groundbreaking portability and technical features of Super 8 to capture the wild intensity of my dog Juice as we played in a down-and-out neighborhood in Buffalo, New York. In 2009, I treated the film as an objet trouvé – without bettering its formal quirks and lags – documenting the so-called ‘amateur’ nature of the medium and an unselfconscious phase of filmmaking practice.” (Eve Heller)
