While browsing a certain video sharing website, I came across a clip I had at one point last year decreed to be my favorite film on all of YouTube–then promptly forgot about.  “Home Movies” by the Brooklyn-based Amanda Monroe Finn is ephemeral, enigmatic and evocative (and those are just the “E”‘s), and is described by Finn as “putting myself into my family’s home movies from the 1940s and 50s.”  Her other YouTube film, “Super 8mm test footage” is as advertised, and has its own charms as well.

More short films can be found on her website AmandaFinn.com.
