Title:

Ozymandias

Synopsis:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

'Nothing beside remains'. An accelerated shuffle through cinematic ends.

The films title refers to Shelley's compressed sonnet on the shattered colossus of tyrant Ramesses II.

Ozymandias deploys a database of movie cue-dots collected from free digital-TV broadcasts. This ongoing archive of near-redundant time signals provides an archaeological resource to
remember cinema's outgoing physicality, and a method of enquiry into narrative and perceptual processes.
