The Film of the Book; two sets of photographs with accompanying words and sounds. The image, the word, the sound presented in a simultaneous backwards/forwards state. (Opening / closing caption; "PROJECTIONIST; Re-run film - Do Not Re-Wind). The film is shown in effect, twice. "Other structurings of particular interest were MIKE LEGGETT's Erota / Afini, which could be projected forwards and backwards, right way up and upside down, whichever way yielding one combination of rightway up upside down in the imagery and one combination of intelligible sound track (this film also managed to be humorous in a non-distractive fashion and contained a very beautiful and complex superimposing / disuperimposing / zooming in / zooming out with a series of old stills washed in pale greens)." - J. Du Cane, Time Out.
