Using images “from the first four and a half decades of cinematography”, Gustav Deutsch has constructed a musical “film drama in five acts”. The film constructs its own amazing attractions from the juxtaposition of documentary, fictional, pornographic, scientific and propaganda images, that are literally alien to their original purpose - images that do not necessarily belong together, though they create visual context. The central thread is supplied by ancient mythology and fragmentary quotes of Hesiod, Sappho and Plato.
The screening is followed by a Q&A with Gustav Deutsch and Mark Webber.
