"Kidnappers Foil" is an immersive moving image installation by the Toronto-based artist Gareth Long that explores the social, cultural and media histories of amateur American filmmaking through the lens of the itinerant Texan filmmaker Melton Barker. Between 1936 and 1976, Dallas-born Barker traveled from town to town across the American South and Midwest, using a single script to produce hundreds of unique iterations of the same film.
