Blow-up

Austria, 2000 (MIFF 2001, Experimental)

Director: Siegfried A. Fruhauf

A humorous cinematic resuscitation' where the process of blowing 'life into a female dummy is analogous to the process of blowing up substandard film material to 35mm. Blow-up breathes with the pleasure of experimenting with raw material.
