The ENCLAVE: an infa-red film made in Congo

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 7.36.44 AM

Photographer/filmmaker Richard Mosse has taken the analog power of infa red film, which was used by the military in the 40’s for detecting enemy soldiers cloaked within green surroundings by reflecting the chlorophyll from plants and converting their colors from green to red.  All other matter appears unscathed by this amazing effect, which appears to be glorified in the latest Star Trek: Into Darkness opening scene.  The Enclave is an amazing film that reveals the horrors of war and crimes against humanity that are unfolding in the country of Congo.
