Matthias Müller´s trailer, commissioned by the VIENNALE, is an avantgarde-poem that recreates an imaginary, forever changeable world of filmstars and film sets, of curtains and white screens, moved by a mysterious breeze: a fascinating vision of cinema´s endless possibilities, partly compiled of found footage from Hollywood and France, composed to a one-minute-advertisement for the suggestive art of moving pictures.
Against a pitch-black night-time sky, splendid fireworks explode. From a different darkness, gleaming male body parts light up. Meticulous cutting and solarisation make the fireworks seem to emerge from the very centre of the bodies.
