Slitfilm (Résfilm)

(2005, short, 35mm, color, 19 minutes, cinemascope, DolbySR)

”Since I’ve been involved in film-making it has always bothered me that images in films are too concrete and as such they ignite the imagination but do not let it soar. The image seen in the target of a film camera never exists in that particular form in real life. Thus, contrary to traditional means of recording images it isn’t designed to create the illusion of reality. In this film an attempt is made to tell a story using a means that has nothing to do with real experience.”
Sándor Kardos

Based on Akutagawa Ryunosuke's short story 'Handkerchif'.
