Contemporary Film is nothing more than a series of flashing images and recorded sound. This Structuralist piece emphasizes this idea by exploiting the anti-standards that the general population feels towards cinema today. There is no enjoyment derived from this piece, and in fact it is bordering irritation. Nonetheless, it is amazing that a film with such bold innovations can still exist, albeit it was filmed in the 60's. I also recommend wikipedia-ing who Adulf Rainer is...I still haven't quite figured out his connection to the film, but I'm sure Kubelka has some sort of intention. It also may be beneficial to study the Structuralist movement before you watch this piece as well.
