8/64: Ana-Action Gunther Brus (1964) 16mm, black and white, 2.75 min

Genre: Experimental

"8/64: ANA is Kren's first film of an 'action' by Gunter Brus. This three-minute film was far more akin to the American-style 'happening' in that the content was not particularly extreme. It was built up from items such as broken bicycle parts, a nude model, pieces of furniture, and these elements were then obscured or transformed by having a layer of paint thrown on them. "Kren films short sequences from many different angles, using high-contrast black and white film to create an effect not unlike that of a painting by Robert Kline." -- Stephen Dwoskin, Film Is
