A FILM IN WHICH THERE DID NOT APPEAR SPROCKET HOLES, EDGE LETTERING WITHOUT DIRT PARTICLES

2002 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 5' 00

This film is one of my currently series works as the "Requiem for the Avant-garde Film" series, in which I "reinterpret" canonical experimental films such as Peter Kubelka's "Arnulf Rainer", etc.

In this time, I'm reffering to George landow's (owen Land 1944) masterpiece, "Film in which There Appear Holes, Edge Lettering, Dirt Particles and etc." (1996, 16mm, 4', US).

Landow had interested to "the fact of a film material" extremely. A color chart, a female image, the sprockt hole and edge number existed in a general film as a sign on the film industrial product, however, we could never see them. That is to say, we are appreciating the chosen part that it should be shown, when we go and see to the cinema. Here, I point out such a fact with hiding itself, this can be shown to define "the fact of a film" paradoxically.
