Nowness presents New York-based video artist Marco Brambilla's kaleidoscopic take on The Wizard of Oz in his 'director's cut.'

“This moment in the film stayed with me since I saw The Wizard of Oz as a child for the first time," Brambilla declares.

"The Celluloid project began a year and a half ago," Nowness explains, "with Brambilla sampling images from cinematic moments that he felt were embedded in our collective subconscious, and then transferring them back onto actual film, before decomposing the strips using acid and other chemical treatments to create the impressionistic feel."
