TRIGGER

by Björn KÄMMERER
2014 / color / silent / 1S / 2' 00

A black screen with a reticle in its centre, vaguely reminiscent of Ego-Shooter games. Then figures from shooting galleries make fleeting appearances, lasting just fractions of a second, pistol in hand, standing or kneeling. A conglomeration of stereotypes from American gangster movies. The TRIGGER in its double meaning, as a trigger for both weapons and cameras. From 150 so-called “training targets” Björn Kämmerer made a selection for his latest film, filmed these on 35mm and with the aid of overexposure assembled them to a cinematic stroboscope. That makes a bang, even without sound!
