Craig Baldwin: Spectres of the Spectrum

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.

16mm film on DVD projection, 93 min
