Living rooms coolly lit by white noise on TV screens are a familiar harbinger of approaching doom in most feature films. In Cell, just this one unheimisch cinematographic element is put under the magnifying glass. A concentrated montage of countless fragments with flickering and spooky snow-covered screens from Hollywood films. This is the ultimate meta-cinema. No message, just medium.
(catalogue IFFR Rotterdam 2007)
„CELL is a controlled montage of images with the noise of television screens in dark living rooms. An experiment in which visual beauty is the most essential part.“ (catalogue Courtisane, Gent, 2007)
