Production

The title derives from the fact that the actual content of the film is just one second long; animation consisting of 12 large frames (9 ft x 5 ft collaborative paintings). The frames were painted by hundreds of people during a multi-disciplinary event on March 8th, 2001 (International Women's Day). Each of the 12 frames gets filmed twice (on 65 mm film) to create the 24 frames in one second of film. The one second of animation will be immediately followed by 90-minutes of credits scrolling during a 'making of' documentary.
