Realtime

Austria, 2002 (MIFF 2003, Experimental)

Director: Siegfried A. Fruhauf

A bright green ball slowly emerges on a black background from the lower edge of the screen. A buzzing tone leads to a screeching sound. In this minimal work, the sun's movement in real time reduces cinema to its essence.
