COMING ATTRACTIONS

by Peter TSCHERKASSKY
2010 / 35mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 25' 10

"A negative image of a man's eyes in a car's rearview mirror. The countershot shows a smiling woman, and her wholly unambiguous facial expressions call our attention to the image's left-hand side, where film clips take shape in a flickering split screen. They show models, cups and various types of vehicles, which are then worked over thoroughly in the next 25 minutes: Coming Attractions. The title refers to both the nature of advertising films and early cinema, the 'cinema of attractions." - Christoph Huber
