Two-minute short about cinema's collective unconscious. No wonder all sorts of demonic curiosities arise, those that fed Fellini's 'dwarfs' and Bergman's 'skeletons'. The nucleus of cinema in the single shot seen as a release into history of the image-making cornucopia that captivated modernity's magic lantern.
