(72 min, 2013. Available with English subtitles.)
Memories, mirrors, madness and Memento collide in this experimental video essay focusing on the photographs and photographers in thousands of narrative films. All the Memory in the World is a stream-of-consciousness meditation on cinema, photography, identity, memory and dreams narrated by an insomniac who obsesses over images.
“Lines of reality are further blurred when the narrator repeats dialogue from movies, mimicking the actors onscreen, who are often female. Photos are ripped and taped back together, mirrors crushed. The movie begins anew multiple times, the narrator asking the audience to start again from the beginning. But where was the beginning? The camera's lens zooms in, pulls back, hiding, obscuring, bleeding into one scene from another.” —Justin McIntosh, Columbus Alive.
All the Memory in the World was #11 on Nelson Carvajal's "The 30 Best Films of 2013".
