Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (

Biutiful, Babel

) has created the highly experimental short film "Naran Ja," a dance piece that he shot on VHS. He says, "VHS texture is for digital what grain used to be for film…Digital and most film stock is so sleek now, that everything looks very plastic and unnatural. We have lost the skin of the images. Cameras reproduce reality much more sharply than my eyes can see and that’s why it looks fake…I thought this $39 VHS camera reproduced an exquisite, moshy-moshy, beautiful, horrific greeny-yellowish skin that triggered my emotional memory of TV series from the 70s. I loved it."
