The Take-Up consists of one take, a fixed frame, variable speed flicker effect, and just a single sound edit. For all this, the film unspools an audio-visual mystery that looks at digital video anew, and at celluloid sideways. This dark puzzle mixes documentary didacticism and mechanical movie magic to reveal the wonder that lies dormant in a mundane street scene. – PT
