Artist, Filmmaker

Blockbuster has been created using footage from three notoriously popular films, from different regions and different times - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Speed, and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar. The filmmaking process involved printing the frames of each scene and re-shooting the footage as stop motion against an intense light, rendering them translucent, thus literally allowing one to 'see through' the footage. It is an attempt to simultaneously observe as well as destroy the historical 'mountain-like' structure of the cinematic narrative, which is especially obvious in popular film sequences designed to invoke intense drama.
