Movie Barcode

I hope film color theorists know what to do with this because I sure don't:

Apparently, it's created by the average color of each frame condensed to a one pixel column. But, of course, all I can think about are barcodes for avant-garde films: La Région centrale, Presents, The Flicker, T,O,U,C,H,I,N,G, Blow Job, Mothlight, Little Dog for Roger, select Storm de Hirsch and Luther Price, Le Court bouillon, etc. Or what about the proto-avant-garde of the Cinema of Attractions?
