Mock up on Mu

New Horizons International Competition


Damon Packard, Michelle Silva, Stoney Burke, Kal Spelletich

Film description

Mock up on Mu is a film juggling unrestrained cinema games with cinema. The game's initiator's idea was to create entirely new screenings based on existing material: Baldwin's compilation is made of short fragments of s-f films from various periods from the history of cinema (from the 1940s to the 1970s). The technique of making films with fragments of finished productions by other artists - so-called found-footage - is a formal concept which can be called the season's revelation, a trend which dominated programmes at this year's festivals worldwide. Although initially invented in the middle of the 20th century and partly inspired by the Soviet editing cinema, especially Dziga Vertov's works, it is still a little known form of artistic expression, reflecting a very modern attitude to film.

In less than two hours of screening, we find not only amusement, but also an erudition test for those who love science fiction - both its pop aspect and the more independent side.
