Christoph Draeger: Elephante, 2011
HD Video, 11 minutes
Re-enactment of the original film Elephant (2003) by Gus Van Sant. Draeger asked the students of the European University in Madrid, to remake the final ten minutes of the original film. An analytic interview with Gus Van Sant was edited to add a voice-over to the sound of the clip: an irritation which creates an emotional distance to the brutality of the action, thus bringing the work close to the realm of documentaries (which Van Sant himself claims to be influential to his work).
