Notes on Film 02

film series: From Vault to Screen: Austria

As a precautionary measure in light of COVID-19, the Gallery has canceled this event. We hope to welcome you to the Gallery soon and thank you for your support.

The influence of Austria's lively avant-garde scene is evident in Notes on Film 02, as Norbert Pfaffenbichler combines structural filmmaking methods with elements of narrative cinema to investigate the theme of variation and repetition. Content from Robert FrankĀ“s O.K. End Here (1963) comes in the form of random moments from the life of a married couple arranged on the basis of an alphanumeric editing model. (Norbert Pfaffenbichler, 2006, subtitles, 96 minutes)

This film is presented in association with sixpackfilm, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and presenting Austrian experimental cinema.
