Raquel Times Ten

Raquel Times Ten features 53 seconds of silent footage with actor Raquel Nave (Welcome To New York, Bizarre) which has been duplicated from one VHS recording to another, and that copied to another VHS cassette, and that to another VHS cassette… in total, this sequence is presented ten times and with each duplication the image and the soundtrack quality deteriorate until Raquel’s facial features are a wave of analogue distortion.

Chris O’Neill is a filmmaker, programmer/curator and writer currently based in Cork City, Ireland. His film work moves between experimental and narrative/character-driven films for dramatic and intimate effect.
