5. Cinema Revisited

Film Is. 7-Comic (2002)
September 7, 2012 - 7:30 pm

Revisiting classical cinema in order to reinvent and create entirely new artistic visions is an attribute of Austrian avant-garde audiovisual production over the past twenty-five years, and it also represents a source of fascination for today’s curious filmgoers. Here, images of Barbara Stanwyck are reappropriated, Anna Magnani’s voice accompanies scenes of Italian suburbia, Mickey Rooney and July Garland are vivisectioned, Barbara Hershey is attacked by the apparatus, and the poetry of early cinema is resurrected in all its beauty in Film Is. All this, in addition to material taken from hundreds of other sources, contributes to the creation of unique cinematographic languages.
