Cannibal's of Time 3: Flashback! Please be kind, rewind

Soy cámara online

The present-day taste for films with a chaotic narrative may be explained by the need to adapt to a future of expanded memory and infinite shared files, where chronological order is irrelevant.

A look back at the history of the flashback in film allows us to trace the way we have learned to interrupt accounts in the present with incursions into the past, initially announced and measured by watery curtains and soft focus, and where past and present now jostle playfully and violently for position.
