Super-8 Films

Le Cain has made a number of films on Super8 with sound on tape that are designed to be screened exclusively on film and will never be digitised. These minimalistic works place a strong emphasis on the materiality of the celluloid image, exploring the contrast of lengthy stretches of dark screen and sparse, often dense bursts of imagery. The first of these is Dark Plastic Reversal (2011, 11 mins). The two subsequent S8 films, The End of the Universe as Red (2012, 12 mins) and Money Spent at Night (2012, 8 mins) were more recently edited together along with additional footage to form Image Turned Down (2015, 20 mins).
