Instructions for a Light and Sound Machine

Peter Tscherkassky
The hero is easy to identify.Walking down the street unknowingly, he suddenly realizes that he is not only subject to the gruesome moods of several spectators but also at the mercy of the filmmaker. He defends himself heroically, but is condemned to the gallows, where he dies a filmic death through a tearing of the film itself. The film is an attempt to transform a Roman Western into a Greek tragedy.
