I Think This Is the Closest to How the Footage Looked

Poster for I Think This Is the Closest to How the Footage Looked Filmmaking and life intersect around the problem of lost footage. A husband records his dying wife. A grieving son loses the tape. Directors Yuval Hameiri and Michal Vaknin, using simple objects to great effect, recreate the lost sequence. The resulting documentary effectively captures what was lost in the original footage, a much deeper loss that no recreation will replace.
