Artist and filmmaker Jasper Rigole collects amateur films, travelogues and family documents at the IICADOM archive (The International Institute for the Conservation, Archiving and Distribution of Other People’s Memories). OFFoff will screen two of his single screen films made of such archival footage.

Paradise Recollected

As a blend of ironic mockumentary and filmic essay, Paradise Recollected delves into the motives behind the making of home movies as well as the elements that characterise their visual content. The film is a poetic study of home movies as a kind of portrayal of the leisure culture that arose parallel with the advent of the inexpensive Super 8 cameras in the 1960s.

Temps Mort

Temps Mort is one of IICADOM’s categories used to designate the archival material collected from the end of the film stock, which content was the result from the amateur film maker’s need to fill the film roll to the end before sending it for processing. In effect a way of killing time, these images do not depict the “unique” moments of which the archive mainly consists, but commonplace, banal scenes.
