Back And Forth

Fortnight 1970, Short film, 45'

Synopsis

This is the worst kind of art film. BACK AND FORTH takes place almost entirely in an empty classroom. Various people show up now and then. The gimmick here is that the camera continuously moves back and forth, at an ever-increasing rate of speed, and by the end of the picture everything’s just a blur. And then, just when you can’t take it any more, the camera begins moving UP AND DOWN! You see, the patterns of nature are not merely horizontal–they’re VERTICAL! Whatever…
