THE FILM

Life on Tape follows the obsession of John Flaus, an Australian film icon, as he tries to document the world in its current state. Flaus records the world's events by vigorously collecting daily newspaper articles and taping shows off television. After forty years of collecting, he has amassed rooms full of tapes, papers and relevant documents. So what started this obsession, where is it headed and what value can be attached to one man's attempt to capture the ephemeral of everyday life?

"This stuff is superficially chaotic, underneath there is a logic"
