SOME THOUSANDS OF NEGATIVES / ALGUNS MILHARES DE NEGATIVOS
A short film by Paulo Seabra
In 1993, Paulo Seabra bought up the entire photographic collection of Studio Paris in Estrela, Lisbon. It consists of dozens of cardboard boxes with hundreds of tins containing thousands of negatives, some already in an advanced state of decay.This film documents the discovery of many of these negatives. The film itself is shot in negative, thereby “developing” these recovered images.
