Get Ready

This little film of revised found feature film shots doesn’t need more than sixty seconds to prove that cinema is a first class medium for both the idle and the busy. An artfully composed idyll by the sea, uneventful, just like an image from a dream, is sped up and transformed into a nightly ghost ride, driving against traffic down a busy street, through flickering black and white oscillations, toward the glaring headlights of a car (or that of a film projector). (...) If there is even just one other film in this festival that can live up to the aesthetic level of its trailer, we have much to look forward to. (Stefan Grissemann)
