At One View

Netherlands, 1990 (MIFF 1991, Fiction)

Director: Paul de Nooijer, Menno De Nooijer

"Two men in chairs by the open hearth; photos move in front of their heads." Accurate enough, though hardly preparation for this combination of pixilation, micromesh mixing, photography and film. The filmmakers' concerns are with the world of art " as an artificial world", and "when the representation of reality takes on maniacal forms". Or are they just having fun? (See A Fortified City) (H.K)
