Rhinoceroses » Ann Arbor Film Festival


(Karl Kels, 1987, 9 min)

“Kels organizes sequences of images with an accelerated activity unnatural for his subjects but coherent for the process of cinematographic creation. At the end of the film the archaic beasts slowly and imperturbably leave their cage. At that moment, with the camera recording what takes place in front of it in real time, their gestures regain an intrinsic timelessness, finding, in our company, the sort of peacefulness they need to exit the stage.” -Miryam van Lier
