The Magic Bullet
PER 2018, HD VIDEO, 3’06’’, ENGLISCH/ENGLISH
According to the theory of the “magic bullet,” John F. Kennedy was assas-sinated by a single bullet issued from the gun of a lone sniper, Lee Harvey Oswald. The procession of Kennedy’s open-roofed presidential limousine, just moments before his murder, returns in various settings via images from Pablo Larraíns feature film Jackie (2016), pictures that can barely be differentiated from the original historical material. Excerpts from historical television commercials interrupt the study. The indiscriminate juxtaposition of reenactment, news broadcasts and commercials softens the sense of reality which, in turn, is enhanced by a fascination of the Kennedys whose aura turned the White House into a mythical Camelot

(PER 2012, HD, 3 Min. 39 Sek., no dialogue)
Over the years much has been said about dreams and their influence on our life. In many cultures dreams serve to predict the future and in many cases to explain the present as well. Based on the myth of Perseus, Calico was shot entirely in Peru and shows the main character’s search for the key to his sad fate.
