Abstract
Documentation of a trip to Europe taken by JoAnn Elam's sister Susan and her friend Laura Black in the summer of 1976. In jest, the pair often used the camera loaned by JoAnn to film their adventures as movie homages. In this footage, following a sequence of abstract building silhouettes against a red sky, Laura is seen reenacting the horse galloping motions from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) at an unidentified castle. The second half of the film is mostly black with occasional light leaks, likely the result of a camera malfunction.
