35mm

In a movie,
even if nothing is happening on screen,
even if the camera remains focused for a time on the same stationary object,
the film still races through the projector at 24 frames per second.
Thus, the image before your eyes is continuously being replenished,
replaced by a new if identical image at the same constate rate.
The projectionist does not hold still on one frame.
The rush of the celluloid through the machine does not stop, slow down or speed up.
It is just like the flow of time.
