CEROLAX II

by Mara MATTUSCHKA
1985 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 1' 40

"In this film, a 1 1/2 minute long satire on TV commercials, Mara Mattuschka uses black and white live animation. The star, Mimi Minus, has been invited to introduce the sale of a new product: a sticky-black brain washing soap, which M.M. first applies to her reflection, in order to wash one of her brain hemispheres clean, afterwards she applies the soap to her body: she sprays all the marks on her body and changes the spots to a new shade, then she numbs her senses with the miracle soap: first the pubic area, then the armpits, then the eyes, mouth and ears. In the end, the slightly devastated and freshly-cleansed housewife puts on a wig and looks scrutinizingly into the camera/mirror." - Christa Blümlinger
