Besenbahn

Austria, 2001 (MIFF 2003, Experimental)

Director: Dietmar Offenhuber

Traversing homogenous suburbs and multiplexed freeways, Besenbahn clinically and elegantly fragments the notion of a 'road movie'. Using time slice technology, this videographic experiment transcends time and place as it ruptures the geometries of movement and perception.
