About The Guests 3D

Not rated
Year Released:

Ken Jacobs has been concerned with the exploration of stereoscopic phenomena since the mid-1960s. He has experimented with a number of 3D techniques and has developed ways to infuse his 2D work with heightened illusions of depth. The Guests, which has existed previously as anaglyph video, is now a digital 3D spectacle, which revisits an early Lumière Brothers film, Entrée d’une noce à l’église (1896). As we watch the congregation mounting the steps of a Parisian church, our attention is drawn to the smallest of details: from the grain of the image to the facial gestures of the long-dead guests to the city landscape behind them. Ken Jacobs does more than extend the time (and space) of the original footage—he invites us to see in a way that we have never seen before.
