Martin Arnold by Scott MacDonald – from A Critical Cinema 3 (Interviews with independent filmmmakers)

Arnold’s Pièce touchée (1989), is still available to watch on MUBI as part of the Cannes 50 Years retrospective.

The film is 16 minutes long and this in only 8:46

His other film Alone: Life wastes Andy Hardy (1998) is reviewed by Michael Zryd in Senses of Cinema, which also includes a filography.

Arnold mused an optical printer to make this film, not digital editing.
