On just a few occasions between 1932 and 1940, two unrelated and far flung families picked up their brand new 8mm movie cameras and sparsely documented their lives. Left behind are the images of long-gone people and their forgotten events. Joell Hallowell and Jacalyn White have created a filmic collage of these home movies and old family photographs, layering them with the displaced voices of an array of viewers—people watching, remembering, wondering and imagining. In a fine balance between speculation and truth, this is a compilation of what is known, what is imagined to be true, and what can’t be imagined at all. “Stand Still” offers evidence, conjures truths, creates blatant lies, and draws impossible connections and conclusions. The result is a separate reality—the truth of speculation, the truth of juxtaposition. For more information: nowthen.squarespace.com
