Hollis Frampton's film (nostalgia), made in 1971, is a witty, hypnotic account of an artist's experiences as a photographer in New York City from 1959 to 1966.

Long overlooked and understudied, (nostalgia) is a formal masterpiece. It emerges from a body of film that is rarely screened, with prints damaged and difficult to locate. Rachel Moore introduces a new generation to a critical moment in art history when (nostalgia) exposed the fragility and the essence of film itself.
