Synopsis This is an homage, structured in several independent episodes, to the pioneers of the art of cinematography who developed what is known as “films of attraction”. To do this, Tscherkassky employs avant-garde techniques and applies them to material from ad films made over the past decades.
Director bio This film writer and director has been connected with the film industry since he purchased his first super-8 equipment at the age of 21. The length of his CV is therefore no surprise. Born in Vienna in 1958, he studied Political Sciences and Philosophy at Vienna University. He organized various events at Vienna's Stadkino and dedicated part of his life to teaching. He also served as artistic director of the “Diagonale – Austrian Film Festival” in Salzburg. Tscherkassky returns to Gijon International Film Festival after being the object of a retrospective in 2008, with this short film, which was awarded the Orizzonti Award at this year's Venice Film Festival.
