Black Sun

Austria, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Austrian Experimental Films)

Director: Johannes Hammel

Persistently black & white, and in negative for ever. This caressing film transcends. (Based on a sci-fi story by Samuel R. Delany which tells the story between a 'spacer' and a 'frelk'...in a future world where bodies radiate.) The pulsat­ing texture of buildings, plants, and rooms with their everyday objects, of bodies and life's movements is uncovered, like removing a transparent covering. This is the unveiling of the real to reveal film's sumptuous emulsion.
