Witness the boundless spectacle of the world through the eyes of the people who call it home!
IMG 0000 (2023) is a symphony of raw video clips mined from the depths of YouTube — a feature-length exposition transporting us into the intimate realms of ordinary people from around the globe – their homes, vacations, & school presentations!
IMG 0000 is a modern throwback to pre-narrative films of the 19th century. Just as the cinema of the Lumière brothers documented train stations and bustling crowds of factory workers, our trove of unwitting videographers capture and share the images of everyday life. A new form of observational cinema!
IMG 0000 harnesses thousands of video clips into a phantasmagoric extraction of the precious human resource — join us as we take a first-person leap into the global camera roll!

Presented with a special screening of Dziga Vertov’s MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA (1929),
Voted the 9th greatest film of all time in BFI’s 2022 Sight & Sound list, MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA is a groundbreaking experimental city symphony depicting Moscow, Kyiv, and Odesa in the late 1920s. With its rapid, frenetic cuts and unabashedly avant-garde cinematography, the film is considered a major pioneer of the documentary genre and, in countless ways, fundamental to modern editing.
In Vertov’s own words, the work is “directed towards the creation of an authentically international absolute language of cinema on the basis of its complete separation from the language of theatre and literature.”
