One of the leading contemporary experimental
film makers in the world, the Vienna-based Peter Tscherkassky’s
modus operandi is to reconstruct found footage into new
pieces of work that combine the abstract with the representational,
and the conceptual with craftsmanship.
In his award-amassing films Outer
Space and Dream Work, Tscherkassky “remixes”
The Entity, Sidney J. Furie’s horror movie from 1982.
The two are parts of a Freud-inspired trilogy, in which the director
strives for an idiosyncratic narrative emulating the mechanisms
of dreaming. The quirkily absurd Outer Space has won more
than ten international awards, and Cahier du Cinema magazine ranked
it the third most important film of 2000. Dream Work was
awarded the first prize at the Oberhausen Film Festival this year.
