Korridor

Austria, 1998 (MIFF 2000, Peepshow – Titillation & The Moving Image – Black Garden)

Director: Dietmar Brehm

Korridor is composed mostly of found footage and Brehm's mirror projections into the preexisting compositions. The filmmaker stalks a neo-gothic gallery of pornographic actors engaged in gloomy revelry. Present among his images, he appears in a series of impending repetitions. The metaphor of camera as organ (continued from Party) culminates when the poplar tree (which opens the film) is transformed into a pubic bush as a hand stimulates the lens
