Michael Barrish Screen Test

experimental documentary. with MB. Super-8mm, color/sound. 3 minutes. San Francisco, 1997.

A movie that never was.

As a test for my unrealized filmscript The Gift, I asked Michael Barrish, author of Oblivio, to tell the camera a story about a recent exchange with his father; a subject at the core of The Gift. This film, shot in Super-8 sound, is the story he told, and all that exists from that project.
