Fast Film

Austria / Luxembourg, 2003 (MIFF 2003, Animation)

Director: Virgil Widrich

Fast Film is a chase through film-chases. Using print-outs of found-footage frames, which are then folded and animated, it is an extraordinarily stimulating trip through the history of action films. Screened in Official Competition at Cannes.
