In collaboration with the legendary American film editor Walter Murch (The Godfather) Kurant depicts the invisible universe or junk yard of cut-out characters that have been completely deleted from the final cut of feature films by the editors. Charlotte Rampling, once a young female hitchhiker in “Vanishing Point”, and two actors cut out from “Pulp Fiction” and “The Conversation” continue impersonating their characters 40 years later. A meeting of three copyrights – phantom characters that started living their own lives.
