In CARRIAGE TRADE, Sonbert interweaves footage taken from his journeys throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, and the United States, together with shots he removed from the camera originals of a number of his earlier films.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
"I wake her for some distant things that look like these here"....i traveled with warren sonbert. i experienced one rich world where people eat cakes with hands and wear uniforms and dance, play piano and go to circus. i even participated in one parade, but only for the sake of "mal was anderes". i met her, with burning cigarette and face so calm that leaves a feeling that it´s just opposite of what she wants to
Had been curious about Sonbert's work for a while, but very disappointed. Mediocre diary footage with no panache or visual flare, and what would seem mish mash montage.. same goes for Short Fuse which isn't on this site. Definitely sticking to filmmakers like Mekas, Bernard, Ort, etc, for diary style films.
