Grauzone (Greyzone), 16mm to SD, color, silent, 6 min, 24 sec

Pulsating green light. The undefined, empty, dim space somewhere outdoors, with the horizon marked by a round traffic sign, is like a deserted national borderline. In this shadowy place the figure of a man looms up. He walks into the space, passes the traffic sign and disappears in the distance out of the picture. This is repeated several times. I shot this film on Super 8 at three frames per second and re-filmed the projection of this film at the normal speed of 24 frames per second. Because of this the shutter of the camera can be seen moving in and out of frame continuously, which results in the pulsating green light.
