Storyline

In the darkroom, 50 unexposed film strips were laid across a surface, upon which a frame of "La sortie des ouvrier de l'usine Lumière" was projected. The stringing together of the individual developed sections make up the new film, which reads the original frame like a page from a musical score: within the strips from top to bottom and sequentially from left to right.

Pure And Wasted Garbage
28 April 2011 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is such a cynic exercise coming from someone who call himself an artist, and a low point of what such person can possibly do. First of all there is no film, there's no images, no sound, only blurry images, allegedly taken from "La Sortie Des Ouvriers De L'usine Lumière à Lyon" from Lumière brothers mixed with a new film.

I know, there's worst things than this but short films even if they take a couple of minutes of our lives it is to show something good, interesting at least images and sounds, but this one shows nothing, and it wasted three minutes of my life. One might wonder, what could I possibly do in three minutes? Read a few pages of a great book, watch something good or bad on TV but better than this pointless garbage, make something more useful.

Tscherkassy made other artsy-confusing-interesting works such as "Outer Space" but this one is very bad, and it almost says that if you have a film, a camera and nothing in the brain you can be an artist, a filmmaker. Things don't work this way. Artists must have responsibility, have something to say to its audience, otherwise it's just a lousy rebel with a camera in the hand, no idea in the head and lots of money to spend. I can't say that I watched something here, it's just blurry, fuzzy, grainy and ridiculous glimpses of light and darkness. 1/10
