Art Cinema OFFoff presents:
Gustav Deutsch - Film Ist.

Film Ist. (Gustav Deutsch, 1998/2002)

“It is, in a word, glorious.... what I feel is the inherent power and mystery of such material, the arrangement of these images and sounds into a definition of cinema constitutes one of the greatest pedagogic films I have seen.... my main reaction is to have my socks knocked off.” (Tom Gunning)

As homage to Gustav Deutsch (1952-2019) Jasper Rigole selects Film Ist., a tableau film on the phenomenology of the medium of film. Deutsch started appropriating and re-contextualising found footage in the late 1970s. Film Ist. is a feature film made without a camera. It is a collage, which combines archaic film material from the margins of the history of cinema, collected from the archives of several film institutes. The result is exhilarating, intriguing, funny and beautiful.
