4 Rolls

4 Rolls is a series of Portraits in Black & White shot in 16mm with a really special camera, the Bolex.

Portraits of ordinary people were captured to show all the multicultural and diversity that exist in Sydney, Australia. The film makes the audience reflects about the fact that we are all different people that came from different backgrounds, but aren’t we all the same at the end? Even with all differences! Newtown,Redfern,Waterloo and The city of Sydney were the main shooting locations. Image and music are the perfect combination for this film, letting the audience observe the portraits and feel for those who are in front of the camera. Was a great journey in just a few days driving, walking and looking for common people on the streets. 

Getting to know all these different people was something very special!

Still

A series of portraits, moments in time with people, filmed on 16mm TriX B&W Reversal Stock.
Filmed in and around Sydney over 2010. This was a continuation of work begun by Gustavo Faraco as a thesis student at Sydney Film School, '4 Rolls' (2009 Sydney Latin American Film Festival, 2009 Dungog Film Festival). It was the 10th film in the Secret Film Society's 10 Film Project.
Where the film departs from '4 Rolls' is that more material was shot overall, the final film being more of an edited distillation of the work. This is the shorter version of the film, edited down for festival screenings.
