DE BLIKJESMAN
THE TINCANMAN

by Jaap PIETERS
1991 / Super 8mm / color / silent / 1S / 3' 20

The drive and action of man in 3 min 20.
Collecting as a profound human characteristic, as well as the Sisyphus in all of us, is to be seen in the Tincanman who, as an "unadapted" stranger in this society, takes his own actions and work extremely seriously. It doesn't seem to bother him that this work (as all work) grows out of a permanent repetition. That an observation like this (perceiving without being part of) can be almost painful and at the same time quite humorous, as shown by the reactions of the many spectators before. Bellyache of laughter.

S8 one roll one take and filmed again from the third floor. No sound.
