Director Peter Tscherkassky / 1987 / Austria

An ironical commentary on Christian Metz's attempt to formalize the language of film, exploiting an instant of a Hollywood Western. Eureka: “I was swimming in a pool, suddenly it went 'Bang!' and there was the finished film in my mind's eye.”

Peter Tscherkassky, 17 mins, 1987/89, 16mm (S-8 blow up), Col/B&W, Sound
