“STOP is a feature-length chronicle distilled from 2,500 100-ft camera rolls (354 assembled lab rolls) of 16mm film that I shot between 1995 and 2011 and completed editing in 2012. Organized sequentially into four half-hour programs, it operates around the conventions of home movies: the images are of my own life and as home-movie form dictates: the alternating subjects of family, friends and travel are set by the filmstrip with absolute chronological certainty.”—Jeff Preiss.
