Gary Tarn's remarkable, award-winning documentary, BLACK SUN, investigates this through the story of Hugues de Montalembert, a New York-based artist and filmmaker who was blinded by a vicious attack in 1978.
Drawing surprising connections between market methods and CIA torture techniques developed in the 1950s, the film explores how well-known events of the recent past have been theaters for the shock doctrine, from Pinochet's coup in Chile, to the Tiananmen Square Massacre, to the war in Iraq today.
This film is not an original and fresh concept or narrative structure. I don't mean to be picky but facts are facts and originality is hard to quote as BEING. A film called "La Jetee" (1962) is all still images and was the inspiration for the film "Twelve Monkeys" (1995). If you do your research you will find more films using still images instead of moving images.
I have watched "Confession" and thought it was OK. It is a classic student film and one that should be noted as being a good start. I am yet to see "Ano Una" and I look forward to watching it. But please, using the word original is very hard nowadays as there isn't much originality around.
