BLACK AND WHITE AND WITHOUT SOUND
20:13 min., dvd, black and white, silent, 2008
"BLACK AND WHITE AND WITHOUT SOUND" is build from 1309 single photographs taken with pinhole camera during the film being shown on the tv screen. Each photograph which was exposed for 2 second was later arranged with individual speed raging from split of second till 6 seconds, therefore building unique tempo and then blended with the same material which is composed backwards.
The frequent relentless close-up are formal and thematic key to many Bergman's films. The intruding camera close-ups which only stop when a giant abstracted face fills the frame allow the viewer confront both different states of crisis and examine the role which the face plays as the communicative medium.Those final moments where the subject is almost reduced to pure flesh, the face seems to be beyond the dimensions of the frame and the world in normally exists.
