I am Micro is a film that finds resistance amidst the debris and decay of cinema. Through the use of establishing tracking shots, which reference neo-realism in their length and framing, the film presents an idea and vision of an abandoned optics factory, unused machines, detritus and debris, left alone, trapped in a moment in time. The tone is elegiac, demonstrating the complexity in presenting an alternative vision of film, something against a glossy and spectacular blockbuster that would wrongly have us believe that experimental cinema is dead. This is not a melancholy tribute to cinema, this is a defiant acclamation of resistance. I am Micro is a poetic rally cry.
