Rick Prelinger at IFFR
An average American couple is hypnotised without knowing it. Cleverly made film made up of sixty-four separate found-footage fragments, varying in length from five seconds to four minutes, that have been arranged into one story.
No More Road Trips?
Epic montage film based entirely on American amateur home movies, from many different regions and periods. And this trip down memory lane offers an active role to the audience: all viewers are explicitly invited to talk during the film, as there is no other soundtrack.
Lost Landscapes of Los Angeles
This soundless compilation by Rick Prelinger consists of historical images of Los Angeles, partly filmed by anonymous amateurs and partly by Hollywood professionals wanting to use the footage as background in their studio recordings. Now they act as the background for festival visitors wishing to momentarily lose themselves in a dream scenario.
