The Stammering Alphabet

Commissioned to make a Super 8 film in celebration of the 18th anniversary of the Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles, Sharlene Bamboat and Terra Long each took a roll and began a correspondence. Fragments of text, drawings, and divination techniques were shared and translated into images. Chasing the ephemeral, building a language of collaboration, The Stammering Alphabet is a playful correspondence film.
Made by Sharlene Bamboat & Terra Long. Original Music: Milja Viita & Terra Long.
