In Sixty Six, clippings of characters from Portuguese photo novels and all kinds of comic strips from the 1960s slide past advertising photographs of modernist architecture in Los Angeles from the same period. Occasionally the images are accompanied by love songs played back to front, or by anxious dialogues from the television series Route 66 - also from the 60s.
In twelve stories on which collage artist Lewis Klahr worked between 2002 and 2015, a variety of worlds are brought together. In this experimental film, Klahr juggles poetically with old advertising shots, Greek mythology, elements from pulp detectives and film noirs. The collages form utopian or otherwise dark worlds, all accompanied by a soundtrack in which even silence is an important element. Structure is also a linking thread: 2D images of cut-out comic strip figures particularly stand out, lying on 3D photos of once-so-futuristic retro interiors.
