Anémic Cinéma (Marcel Duchamp, 1926)

Fr. 6 min.

imdb :: wiki

Alternating spiral designs and disks with nonsense puns and rhymes create a hypnotic short film based on the ideas of film as a unique art form- separating it from the fundamental ideas of theater and literature- cinéma pur. What can one accomplish with moving visual imagery that one cannot with any other art form?

The music is by Japanese electronic artist Nobukazu Takemura, and the song is Part 4 of his 2002 Water Music suite. This also aims to create an atmosphere with a new medium- electronic music, that would be impossible to create in any other medium. Both music and imagery lack progression, instead creating atmosphere by a sense of continuity and repetition.
