1. Action!

Arnulf Rainer (1960)
August 17, 2012 - 7:30 pm

The camera's rolling and we’ve boarded a rollercoaster of visual and sound voyages. This opening program combines an excitingly eclectic range of artistic modes and represents both an introduction to what have become the hallmarks of Austrian experimental cinema and the perfect place to begin 10 adventures into cinema and its history. Whether reconstructing found footage, using sophisticated multiple points of view, restaging documentaries or undertaking structural explorations, these techniques all become rhythmic tools for our aural and visual pleasure.
