of Friction Films.
This is a non-commerical project which is currently low-budget and low-tech.
The aim is to prioritise relationships, integrity and creativity. Also
to keep connected to the side of the digital divide which most
of the world occupies. According to the relationships and projects that
grow, resources are gathered and shared.
Friction Films references diverse experiences and shared spaces created
by very many people, calling on knowledge gathered from very many places.
Films is a work-in-progress. Work is ongoing to make sure that recognition
is given to all contributors. If you know of any people or ingredients
that have been left out, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friction Films was created and compiled by Christina Hotz.
