49/95: Tausendjahrekino (1995)

| Documentary, Short
The making of pictures becomes the central issue in itself in that, with an analytical single-picture procedure, picture-taking tourists on Vienna's St. Stephen's Place are captured and their faces animated to a dance.

'I have seen these eyes before.' In thousandyearsofcinema Kurt Kren turns his perspective around with a quiet and unsettling irony. The images appear. One eye tightly shut and the other pressed against the viewfinder. This is the standard position which Kren captures in single frames. Uncountable photographers, with their acutely-angled cameras directed at St.Stephan's Cathedral whizz by. Written by Sixpack Film <office@sixpackfilm.com>

This three-minute short movie is one of the last efforts from Austrian filmmaker Kurt Kren. Almost for the entire movie we see people with cameras taking photos in quick succession. And at the same time, we hear the audio from a pretty old movie. There is really nothing worth watching about this one here and it looks that Kren was really struggling. If Ingot it right, these 3 minutes were some sort of tribute. If that's true, I really wouldn't want to be the tributee. Also the title says (apart from Kren's usual number of week / number of year) a thousand years of cinema, which is absolute nonsense. I hope when this is really the case around 2900, people will not take this film as an example of what filmmaking was like back then.
