Deutsch collected countless holiday films filled with clichés to turn them into his own original film. His material dates from the fifties and sixties when holiday filming was rather less common than now. His approach was simple and effective. He ordered the clichés systematically, and edited them into small series. Being screened are:Prince Albert fährt vorbei (1984) (Colour, 16mm, 45 sec) Non, je ne regrette rien (1984) (Colour, 16mm, 2 min)Samstag 29. Juni Arctic Circle (1960?-1990) (Colour, 16mm, 3 min)
