Film im Zerfall
Anonym, ca. 1965, 4 min (Exzerpt)
Impressions of everyday family life, captured moments of the liveliness of the market, of vacation moods with a view of meadows and mountains, children splashing, playing and running. A family album as moving image sequences, which occasionally evoke memories, but which are successively decomposed. The material invites us to reconstruct these memory fragments and to imagine our own stories. The result is a narrative, adding a further layer on the moving image in decay. The film material – emulsion decomposed by mold – becomes visible in its longevity as an ephemeral element. From the collection of the Austrian Film Museum.
