Mosaik Mécanique

Austria, 2007


All shots of the slapstick comedy A Film Johnnie (1914) are shown simultaneously in a symmetrical grid, one after the other. Each scene, from one cut to the next, from the first to the last frame, is looped. A pulsing visual polyrhythm is produced as a result, because of the shots’ varying lengths

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
