Spectres of the Spectrum
Spectres of the Spectrum (1999) is a film by Craig Baldwin.
Spectres of the Spectrum is a feature-length 16mm film utilizing old 'kinescopes' (filmed records of early TV broadcasts) to create an eerie 'media-archaeological' sci-fi time-travel tale. Threatened by the 'New Electromagnetic Order', a young telepathic woman helps search for a way to save the planet from a futuristic war-machine based on the real life HAARP - High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, a sophisticated research component of the Star Wars weapons arsenal. Craig Baldwin is an independent filmmaker, programmer and media archaeologist using pirated footage to subvert conventional documentary.
