'Best Documentary at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2015'
De Recensie, Amsterdam
'A rich, media-archaeological account of the intertwined histories of visionary technologies, communication cultures, and cinema.'
Association of Moving Image Archivists, University of Amsterdam
'This film essay features an intricately, crafted voice-over by Tilda Swinton, melding together historic fact and contemporary theories.'
'A remarkably timely, compelling and revelatory exploration of the obscured origins of the full spectrum media environment we all inhabit; a work that learns from the past, with insight of an artist-innovator-theoretician's trio, to inform and illuminate current and ever more pressing concerns.'
Gareth Evans, Film Curator (Whitechapel Gallery, London); Producer (Patience – After Sebald)
