Film Ist, a girl & a gun
By Gustav Deustch
Gustav Deutsch, the master of found footage, has mined the world’s film archives to construct a universal narrative of love, passion, war and violence. “The director weaves together a stunning array of color-tinted images from a variety of genres, including scientific, erotic, fiction, and actuality films. Deutsch also obtained privileged access to the film archives of the Kinsey Institute, enabling him to incorporate sequences from especially rare erotic and sex films. Deutsch adroitly assembles a precisely constructed, mesmerizing ebb and flow of images into extraordinary montage sequences divided into five acts: Genesis, Paradeisos, Eros, Thanatos, and Symposion.” –Tribeca Film Festival (2009, 93 min, 35mm)
