Tom Smith - The Future Hasn't Been Written Yet, 2011
The Future Hasn't Been Written Yet by Tom Smith is a dual channel film that simply displays the ending of Back To The Future and the beginning of Back To The Future 2 simultaneously.
Made four years after, the sequel film starts off exactly where the first film finishes. The actors and the film crew have the difficult task of re-staging the last ten minutes of Rober Zemecki's film. With the actors now being older and the replacement of one of the actors, Smiths' video illustrates the discrepancies in the two films as they fall in and out of sync with one another.
Often working closely with appropriated footage from Holywood, Tom Smith's work asks us to think about the constructions and mechanisms involved in creating cinema.
