Passage à l'acte (1993)
- Summaries (2)
Four people at the breakfast table, an American family, locked in the beat of the editing table. The short, pulsating sequence at the family table shows, in its original state, a classic, deceptive harmony. Arnold deconstructs this scenario of normality by destroying its original continuity. It catches on the tinny sounds and bizarre body movements of the subjects, which, in reaction, become snagged on the continuity. The message that lies deep under the surface of the family idyll, suppressed or lost, is exposed--that message is war.
An avant-garde sonic and visual reediting of a short clip from the classic 1962 film "To Kill a Mockingbird."
