Jacob Burckhardt

Wrong Way (1979) 16mm, color, 13 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Films about Film, Media

A film about a future dinosaur, a species that might be headed for extinction, even though it seems to be thriving now. Not the human race, which in spite of everything may continue to suffer for many years, but the automobile. The filmmaker was fortunate enough to reside at the meeting of two great expressways and a tunnel, and from his roof and kitchen window was able to observe closely these machines in their natural habitat (55 miles per hour). It is also a film about visual effects, the camera lens and the human eye, and the difference between the things that they both see.
