schmalhans's rating of the film Public Hearing

What an odd endeavor to reconstruct a public hearing concerning the expansion of a local WalMart with actors and in b/w 16mm. Though, it's marvellously consistent at that. With only slight changes in camera and movement of actors, one can see how cinematographic moods are constructed, broken with and reinstated. It makes me think of great works by late German filmmaker and media artist Harun Farocki.
