from the primitive era...

The use of deep-focus cinematography on long duration shots is central to the mode of film style in the Primitive Era of cinema. Here is a silent film, of its purpose to document the London streets, far away from the formal narrative phase of cinema which blossomed at the start of 1910s. Remarkably, i find this piece of art most objective, almost true to primitive cinema's purpose, to recreate life as it is.

More films this week, glad my load went light after my last week's Thursday.

I greatly enjoyed Dan North's Transformers II piece!
