'Freeze-Frame, a Vanitas of Light' investigates in what form film can exist without the physical presence of film. The starting point is the local history of Wetteren, where in the 1960s were four cinemas; Cinema Roxy, Cinema Nova, Cinema Max and Cinema Forum. The socialists, liberals and Catholics, each had their own cinema and one was there for the 'naughty' films. Now that these cinemas have disappeared from the street scene, the question remains whether the cinematic is still present in Wetteren, or can be, and how an idea of film can exist without actually being present as a film.
