Would anyone know what process was used to make Antonio Sistiaga’s 75
minute 35mm hand-painted silent film, ie. what format stock was used
for the initial painting, how might frame lines been accounted for
during the initial painting, were frame lines even attended to, was
it perhaps painted full frame and then optically printed to
cinemascope, was it shown at sound speed or silent speed?

Not having had the privilege of seeing this masterpiece, anyone know
anything about current showings or any other forms of availability?

Another way of asking this: If you were going to attempt to make a
hand-painted 35mm film to be shown in cinemascope, how would you go
about it?

Hello all -

Some may remember a few inquiries I'd made on the list
several months ago about Jose Antonio Sistiaga's film

Well, the new 35mm print of this film - a 75-minute,
silent, entirely hand-painted piece shown in 35mm
Cinemascope - will soon be playing in a few cities in
the U.S.

The first screening will be in Hollywood, at the
Egyptian Theatre on their large screen (!), **next
Wednesday, April 14, at 7:30pm**.

Screenings will follow in June in Chicago, Pittsburgh,
and San Francisco (details are forthcoming).

Promises to be a rare and unique opportunity, and hope
whoever is interested is able to see it. Some further
details on the film are below.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions about
the film, the print, or other showings.

best wishes,

Mark T
