World Mirror Cinema

Welt Spiegel Kino

A view of the world as it is handed down to us in moving images; contradictory, suspenseful, trusting in the power of film, without commentary. Found footage from the early days of cinema, showing theaters in their urban environments (observing life on the streets, passersby, curious onlookers, and their reactions to the camera), converses with films included in these cinemas’ programs. A stimulating work in progress that allows the reality of the street and the world of the cinema to enter into a cinematic dialogue.
