Synop­sis:

   If Jack Kerouac wro­te his legen­dary novel On the Road on a long paper scroll, why not do it on a long 35mm film roll as well?
   By re-typing the com­ple­te book –with the use of 35mm black lea­der ins­tead of paper on a typew­ri­ter– this pro­ject attem­pts, among other things, to con­vert Kerouac’s roman­tic rhyth­mic wri­ting method onto a cold and mecha­ni­cal trans­crip­tion in order to give the work new pos­si­bi­li­ties and readings that, when pro­jec­ted at 24 fra­mes a second, although they do empha­si­ze Kerouac’s inten­tions of imme­diacy, they trans­form the text into ille­gi­ble blot­ches of let­ters that demys­tify and ques­tion lan­gua­ge at its most ele­men­tal levels.
