The critic and lecturer in film and contemporary art, Cloe Masotta, presents Screen by Matthias Müller and Christoph Girardet. A film made, like other works by this artistic couple, using the found footage technique, appealing directly to the audience through disembodied voices speaking in several languages. This, together with the images, so material and concrete they're almost abstract, makes the film hypnotic, taking us back to the early days of cinema and the birth of psychoanalysis.
