Guy Maddin was haunted by the disappearance of an estimated 80% of silent-era cinema. So the Canadian filmmaker dreamt up an online “machine” that would resurrect some of these lost stories, but only allow each of its creations to be viewed once. Seances, which Maddin made with Evan and Galen Johnson with support of the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), uses an algorithm to shuffle its scenes into an ephemeral short film experience.
