Each of the short, student-made films in this exhibition will appropriate and re-imagine a photograph from the Cantor’s collection. Striving to shed new light on the original context of the photographs, the films will be shown alongside the Cantor photographs that served as their inspiration. The short films were made by Stanford students in Assistant Professor of Art Srdan Keca’s “Archival Cinema” class during fall quarter 2017.
