A clearing, a wooden shack. A sitting teenager tries his lighter on a twig. And the shack is set on fire. And the boy is standing still, in front of the flames, fascinated by the show. And the camera starts a dance around the scene, until the embers at the end. A round dance of the camera, a fascination for these Super 8 images, as though coming from afar, like a childhood memory, and the movement of disappearance. Maybe that is what foreshadowed the cinefactum of the title: a Fact-ash. (NF)
