Embeha uses a montage from Thomas Edison’s 1910 film rendering of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol (and the crisis of Ebenezer Scrooge), early American money, and moving images of text from the printed story. The crisis of Scrooge is combined with a photomontage related to the US financial crisis of 1837, which is alluded to by Dickens in this popular story.
