Notfilm documents the creation of Samuel Becketts collaboration with Buster Keaton, the contentious 1964 avant-garde short entitled, simply, FILM. Becketts only work of cinema was released to a deeply divided audience; some called it a masterpiece, some found it confusing. Beckett himself ultimately regarded the film as a failure, yet it remains as enigmatic and fascinating as ever in the cinephilic consciousness.

Ross Lipmans film essay combines outtakes from the original work, audio recordings of production meetings, interviews, and Lipmans own commentary. What results is not so much an explanation but a further investigation of Becketts own intentions, and into the origins, limits and human implications of cinema itself.
