A film made from decaying old films, by Bill Morrison. I haven't
seen it yet but it sounds amazing. here's a review from the
Village Voice:

Bill Morrison is not the first artist to take decomposing film
stock as raw material, but he plunges into this dark nitrate of
the soul with contagious abandon. Founded on the tension between
the hard fact of film's stained, eroded, unstable surface and the
fragile nature of that which was once photographically
represented, Decasia is an avant-garde movie with universal
appeal, as well as an apocalyptic subtext unavoidably tied to the
catastrophe of 9-11.
