Passage A L'acte

Austria, 1993 (MIFF 1993, Austrian Experimental Films)

Director: Martin Arnold

A film where repetition and stop-frame tech­niques take on new meaning. Inspired by rap "scratching" turntable music, Arnold takes an extract from the 1962 film To Kill a Mockingbird to create a filmic rhythm.
