Notfilm (Doc) @ UK Slapstick Festival

NOTFILM is a documentary about the embattled collaboration between Nobel Prize-winning playwright Samuel Beckett and silent-era genius Buster Keaton as they filmed Beckett’s only on-screen work.

During the restoration of FILM (1965), NOTFILM director Ross Lipman discovered its long-lost prologue under a sink at Barney Rosset’s (producer of FILM) house. He then reconstructed this scene for NOTFILM in strict accordance with Beckett’s original notes. A fascinating insight into Buster’s last ‘silent’ film.
