Austria | 88 min.
The most powerful, exciting experimental scene in Europe drives this Austrian Trip, dizzying (and pleasant) immersion in the heart of the image in movement. Using material from NASA, Endeavour explodes in a rhythmic, stunning journey in a space rocket. Michaella Grill squeezes out, with video, the old celluloid of the Austrian Film Museum in Cityscapes, a walk through the city towards a delicate abstraction. Creme 21, using educational and scientific films, gives a weightless answer to the question what is time.
The journey becomes visually deafening when it passes through the stroboscopic animation of Exterior Extended, and arrives at one of the most overwhelming works by Tscherkassky, master of film recycling: Coming Attractions. Advertising and the early avant-garde intertwine for the delight and fascination of anyone who has eyes. Finally, Optical Sound, where the optical sound track comes out of its serrations to infiltrate the screen, with hypnotic results.
