Copy Shop is a bizarre time travel with cloning story with minimum dialog; a wonderful use of the short video medium to convey so much in so little time. And then, from 1943, this surreal and experimental short film is called Meshes of the Afternoon, and was created by husband and wife team Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid. While watching this I kept expecting to hear Alan Ginsburg break into poetry narrating the circular ongoing sequence in a single sentence that flowed from twist to turn without ending or pause for breath. Enjoy!
