Cuba Still (Remake) started with a publicity still for a forgotten film which Hannah purchased in Havana. Hannah restored to the screen, for the purposes of video capture, the six characters from the original image. The resulting six videos were then screened side by side in order to remake the sequence of the seemingly motionless images into a single cinematic image. An ingenious projecting mechanism completes the original images to crystallize the respective natures of photography and film.
