Margaret Honda Screening 1 December 2023 Svenska Filminstitutet, Stokholm

Screening of Wildflowers and Color Correction directed by Margaret Honda Artist and sculptor Margaret Honda began working with film when analogue film was said to be dying, and her films are often based on hidden or rendered invisible laboratory technical processes. Her Color Correction was made based on lighting strips from a Hollywood film whose images were replaced by color fields. During the projection, the film becomes a dazzling work that sheds colorful light on one of the secrets of film technology. The short Wildflowers is based on a similar principle, and was filmed on two expired Kodachrome rolls that were developed to black and white negatives, as Kodak had discontinued its color development for this type of film. As a motif, Honda chose wilting wildflowers in Southern California.
