Charlie Lyne is a columnist for The Guardian and a critic for Sight & Sound. At his 24 years of age (yes, 24!), his overwhelming love for film has led him to direct two films made with fragments of movies he loves, which will be showcased at BAFICI: Fear Itself and Beyond Clueless. His most recent project is Paint Drying, 607 minutes of white paint drying on a wall, which he submitted to the British Board of Film Classification for their rating.
Narrated by former cult teen star Fairuza Balk, this collage-film places Hollywood high schools under the microscope, through archive footage from more than 200 American high school movies.
Built entirely on scenes from different movies, this film faces the viewer to a wide range of pictures and sounds from a hundred years of horror cinema, and invites you to find out how fear works.
