Synopsis

The interior of a film studio. The camera slowly approaches a prepared set, panning over the positioned objects, and then it suddenly begins capturing its own movements – it begins to reflect itself. This fascinating experimental short deconstructs the fiction of cinema, but it also exposes the indivisibility of simulation and reality. The visually impressive work comments on the ideological basis of the film camera and artistic depiction, pointing to its existence and to the very act of creating a movie in a truly intriguing way.
