In a village not far from here, people use discarded reels of film to make loud toys such as rattlers, whistles and whirligigs. Every day, they make a few hundred toys, and for every hundred toys, they splice, slit and rip strips of film. As they follow this routine monotonously, a few narratives leak out of the shredded analogues of film and fumigate the surroundings with phantasmagoria.
