A Herd Lost in the Red Wood

Switzerland, 1992 (MIFF 1992, Experimental)

Director: Sebastian Dellers

Take a thousand-and-one images and double them, layer them one over the other, add ani­mation, pixillation, shock and tenderness. Refer to red. Analyze the subliminal and sub­limely forget the analysis. Refer to red. Add a sound for each image, and.mix well. A herd lost in the red wood. Or the red wood hiding the herd? Who is the hunter? Which is the herd? (IB)
