dedicated to my grandmother, Rose Gonzalez
I edited this film using color 8mm footage of my grandparents getting married back in 1948. The family thought this footage descentigrated and that they had sent me a roll of my grandfather tossing the football.
Editing and coloring this film was a sort of existential experience, gazing into before it all started, my parents, or any of my aunts or uncles; seeing my grandparents young and passionate and those that were close with them. I'm glad I'm able to share such a rich and beautiful portrait of my family.
I have a few other short films I'm editing using my family's archive of original super 8mm footage. Stay tuned at STALAGMITE.TV
